Eco-friendly technologies for management of phytoparasitic nematodes in pulses and vegetable crops

  • Vijayalakshmi Mojumder
Chapter

Abstract

The traditional use of neem is to apply its parts and products like leaf, cake etc. to the soil as amendments. But this requires large quantities. The alternate application methods have been developed in recent years. These are row, spot or nursery bed treatments either as soil amendments or as soil drenching where bulk quantifies may be reduced. Bare root dip treatments in water extracts of neem products reduced the nematode populations. This method and nursery bed treatment are useful in case of transplantable vegetable crops through these methods are to be standardized before any recommendation. Seed treatments with neem products are effective against various phytonematodes and these are also cost effective. This effective, economical and easy-to-handle seed treatment technology with neem products had been recommended for pulse crops (Mojumder and Mishra, 1997). Tagetes spp. is another plant which can be successfully used as inter-crop or alternative crop in the nematode infested field as its root exudates are effective against nematodes and also this method of management may prove economical to farmers around cities as this is a cash crop.
