Control of Meloidogyne incognita on corn, tomato and okra with Paecilomyces lilacinus and the nematicide aldicarb
AbstractThe effects of the fungus Paecilomyces lilacinus or aldicarb (Temik lOG) against Meloidogyne incognita race 1 on corn cv. Alexandria and okra cv. Baladi and M. incognita race 3 on tomato cv. Prichard were investigated in greenhouse tests. Fungal and aldicarb treatments greatly suppressed the numbers of galls and egg masses on all of the cultivars. Treatment with P. lilacinus was more effective in reducing the nematode egg masses than the aldicarb treatments.
