Other Contributions: Control of Plantain Nematodes with Contact Nematicides

Publication Date


Nematodes associated with 4.5 mo-old plantains were controlled with carbofuran (Furadan 10G) and ethoprop (Mocap 10G) at rates of 22.67 and 45.34 kg/ha (30 and 60 g/plant). The low rate of carbofuran increased plant growth in height, circumference and number of shoots, and significantly (P=0.05) increased fruit yield. The high rate of carbofuran appeared to be phytotoxic. Both rates of ethoprop appeared to increase plant growth and fruit yield.
