Control of banana plant nematodes by soil flooding

Control of banana plant nematodes by soil flooding

Revue de Nematologie 11(2): 235-238

Decline of nematode populations in a flooded peaty soil of a banana plantation was studied. Sulfate reduction caused by sulfate reducing bacteria did not occur:pH remained rather constant (5.5 to 5.8); sulfite concentration (SO3--) did not increase; RedOx potentials (Eh) were very high. Though, Hoplolaimus pararobustus and Helicotylenchus multicinctus populations decreased in the soil and, during the same period, Radopholus similis populations disappeared. So, starvation seems to be responsible of this nematode kill. Floating banana rhizomes coming from the last culture remained infested by nematodes all over the flooding. Then, it appears necessary to destroy or to keep all of them out of the field before flooding.
