New options may help in nematode management
These newer biologicals have been shown to have promise of activity on some of the more destructive nematodes and in some cases insect pests and plant diseases. Their mention is still controversial since the academic community has not accepted them fully. Some are plant extracts such as from the neem plant. Others are extracts from marine organisms, and take advantage of enzymes present in them. Still others are combinations from these sources. Other issues such as the methods of formulation may influence their activity in some cases. These and other means of dealing with nematodes promise to become important tools in the arsenal of control measures in the future.
My suggestion is that growers become aware of these options that may soon be on the cutting edge of crop management
