Value of root-knot nematode protection
Jun 28, 2011
Root-knotnematodes are the most widespread species of nematodes, especially in the south, infecting corn, cotton and soybeans. Root-knot nematodes feed on the inside of roots as immature larvae. Their secretions cause visible galls on the roots, which absorb plant resources and make the plant vulnerable to other infections.
That cuts into crop yield potential. But how much?
Do you have root-knot nematodes in your fields? Have you considered trying to help protect
your soybeans next year?
