Effect of Furadan 4F and Vydate 24% L injected into the banana (Musa AAA) pseudostem on yield and plant-parasitic nematode populations

Effect of Furadan 4F and Vydate 24% L injected into the banana (Musa AAA) pseudostem on yield and plant-parasitic nematode populations

The potential of liquid nematicides for banana yield improvement and control of plant-parasitic nematodes (Helicotylenchus spp., Meloidogyne spp., Pratylenchus spp. or Radopholus similis) was evaluated in Costa Rica. Furadan or Vydate at 2.4 g a.i. was applied at 50 cm height into recently harvested pseudostems, and three months later in one of the pruned shoots of trees in the same production unit.
