Nematode in Nursery seedlings of vegetable crops

Nursery seedlings are infested by various types of nematodes.

These nematodes attack the root system of seedlings in nursery beds. Galling of the roots, stunted growth of roots as well as seedlings are the manifestations of nematode damage in the nursery beds.

Nematodes such as Meloidogyne incognita, M. javanica (root-knot nematodes), Rotylenchulus reniformis (reniform nematode), Heterodera sp., (cyst nematodes) are important among the nematodes attacking seedlings of horticultural crops in nursery beds.

Bio-Nematocide: Paecilomyces lilacinus
