Effect of Radopholus similis on plant growth and yield of plantains (Musa, AAB)

Effect of Radopholus similis on plant growth and yield of plantains (Musa, AAB)

Nematology 2(2): 129-133

A study was conducted over two growth cycles in a field naturally infested with Radopholus similis, to assess the effect of this nematode on plant growth and yield of plantains (Musa, AAB) in Njombe, Cameroon. Cadusafos was used to control R. similis and the improvement in yield was measured. No significant reductions in plant height, pseudostem circumference, number of functional leaves or in the duration of the plant growth cycle between treated and untreated plots were recorded.
