The efficacy of nematicides, solar heating and the fungus Paecilomyces lilacinus in controlling root-knot nematode Meloidogyne javanica in Iraq


, : The efficacy of nematicides, solar heating and the fungus Paecilomyces lilacinus in controlling root-knot nematode Meloidogyne javanica in Iraq. FAO Plant Production and Protection Paper ( 109): 343-350

All tested nematicides, solar heating and Paecilomyces lilacinus reduced numbers of M. javanica on cucumber and eggplant in greenhouse and field experiments. Methyl bromide (40 g/msuperscript 2), solar heating, fenamiphos liquid (5 cc/msuperscript 2) and isazofos (25 g/msuperscript 2) proved to be the most effective. Oxamyl, dazomet and the fungus application showed the least satisfactory effects, with no significant differences in yield compared with the control.

In a pot experiment, a P. lilacinus - rice inoculum was incorporated into the soil of potted tomatoes, 30 days after addition of M. javanica eggs. With the highest inoculum level (1.1 g), 76.25% of M. javanica eggs were parasitized.
