Nematode Control is our next generation nematicide built around our patented, proprietary micronization technology. Compatibility testing on a wide range of crops including tomatoes, cucumbers, melons, strawberries, and watermelons has shown over 80% efficacy using this product. Nematode Control has been proven to significantly impact the population of parasitic species including, but not limited to, root knot, burrowing, lesion, pin, and spiral nematodes.
For the prevention of nematode infestation, mix 3.8 mL (3/4 tsp.) of product with one gallon (1 gal.) of water to properly dilute Nematode Control. For area applications, use 66.6 oz per acre of land via soil irrigation.
If nematode infestation already exists, then mix 7.6 mL (1 1/2 tsp.) of product with one gallon (1 gal.) of water to properly dilute Nematode Control. For area applications, use 1.1 gal per acre of land via soil irrigation. After dilution, irrigate the product onto the soil. Do not apply prior to excessive rains, since this may reduce product effectiveness.
MODE OF ACTION
Nematodes, or roundworms, comprise a diverse group of parasites. They are ubiquitous in freshwater, marine, and terrestrial environments, as they are able to adapt very well to different environmental conditions. They are the most numerous multi-cellular animals on earth. Some nematodes are beneficial to plant growth, but others are detrimental.
Nematode Control targets the harmful nematodes, some of which attack plants and serve as carriers for plant viruses in crops.
Our product minimizes root knots and egg hatching of phytonematodes by disrupting their feeding and reproduction. The effects of soil pathogens and various impediments caused from harmful nematodes in the soil can be diminished by the reduction of these pests. As an effective nematicide, Nematode Control’s ability to decrease nematode populations enables normalized root growth, thereby promoting plant growth.
Nematode Control uses the natural extract Geraniol as the active ingredient to reach the highest level of efficacy, while greatly reducing the environmental impact of using this product. Geraniol is our best recommendation for natural control of plant parasitic nematodes.
– Effective against burrowing nematodes, lesion nematodes, pin nematodes, root knot nematodes, and spiral nematodes.
– Tested on cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, melons, strawberries, tomatoes, and watermelons.
– Enhances plant disease resistance and is broadly used in various fields, such as forests, horticulture, lawns, and organic farming.
SAFETY & ENVIRONMENTAL INFO
Avoid contact with skin and eyes, and do not drink. Handling and storage requirements: product should be stored in a dry, cool place (0-35ºC). Biodegradability of the product has not been determined, so avoid disposing of the product into drainage systems and into the environment. Appropriate land management practices should be used at all times with any pesticide; this material should be prevented from entering public or private water supplies (including wells) and any lake, stream, or river.
Tested on a wide variety of nematodes with an efficacy greater than 80%. It also stimulates plant growth. See below for the efficacy of Nematode Control, based on some on some plant growth tests.
Effective against the species of nematodes listed below:
|Scientific name||English name|
|Meloidogyne spp.||Root Knot Nematodes
Lesion, stubby, pin Nematodes
As shown in the figure below, Nematode Control helps the plant during growth, revitalizes the plant cells and roots, inhibits harmful microbes and phytonematodes, reduces the size of root knots, and destroys nematode eggs.
