MANAGING ROOT-KNOT NEMATODES IN COTTON: EVALUATING ALTERNATIVE AND REDUCED RISK APPROACHES

 

Cotton root-knot nematode is the most important nematode pest to cotton with losses averaging 33,360 bales/year during the period 1989 through 1998. This pest is a problem primarily in sandy and sandy-loam soils, but can be found in loamy soils.

The emphasis on reducing costs and improving profitability is a driving factor for research focused on finding alternative management approaches to fumigants and other nematicides. In addition, interest by society and regulators in seeking reduced risk approaches to pest management is driving the search for alternative nematode…
