All of these nematicides are of grave concern, according to the Pesticide Program, because they inhibit the action of an enzyme, cholinesterase, that plays an important role in the human nervous system.
Efficacy of two organic amendments and a nematicide to manage root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne incognita) of tomato (Lycopersicon esculaentum L.).
Hence, the improvement of other management practices and durable methods are immediately required to minimize the use of nematicides (Martin, 2003; Mukhtar et al., 2013c, 2014, 2017a, b; Hussain et al., 2014).
The aim is to study the efficacy of each plant material for the possibility of mixing their crude form to formulate an organic nematicide alternative to methyl-bromide that was complete banned globally in 2005 due to its harmful effect on the ozone layer.
As a consequence of the constrained utilization of crop rotation and cotton resistant cultivars, the application of granular nematicides, as aldicarb, carbofuran and terbuphos, in the planting furrow is yet widely used, in spite of their elevated costs in comparison to the modest results in terms of yield increase (120 to 180kg of cotton lint) (ASMUS & INOMOTO, 2007).
Nematicides have been used to control different nematodes including SCN (Schmitt et al., 1983; Noel, 1987; Sasser and Uzzell, 1991; Smith et al., 1991).
That's because the varieties they now grow generally can't survive severe nematode attack without protection from chemical nematicides.
