Many landscapers have witnessed root tie nematode, Meloidogyne. There is a possibility of contamination in your harvests, especially if you have sandy soils. It can cause swellings or nerves that may affect the roots and other underground parts of your plants. These can vary in size from a few centimeters to a few millimeters. These nerves can negatively impact the plant is ability to absorb the water and supplements, making them less efficient and more difficult to use. The nematode wounds can also be used to gain access to many plant-pathogenic microorganisms and parasites. These diseases often cause more damage than the immediate effects of nematode treatment.
Many plant types are invulnerable, including beans, silverbeets, cucumbers, watermelons, and squash. However, solanaceous harvests such as tomatoes, potatoes and egg organic product are especially vulnerable.
The Life Cycle of Nematodes
Root-tie Nematodes are tiny, dynamically molded worms that can be seen with an unaided eye. The young incubate from eggs, and travel through dirt to attack roots – usually close to the root tip. Root tie nematode invasion occurs when the roots are penetrated. The termite powder surrounding tissues become invigorated and expand to create nerves. Root hitch-nematode damage is most prevalent in crops that are grown during the hottest months. This is because they reproduce more effectively. In hotter areas, where there is more time for growth and longer taking care of times, they are also more prevalent. Sandy soils have higher pervasions because they have better air circulation. It is also easier for nematodes and soil particles to move in sandy soils.
Control of Nematodes
You should set up preventative measures to stop nematode diseases. This is especially important if you have sandy soils or are experiencing helpless yield types. It is extremely difficult to control nematodes once they have contaminated harvests without completely annihilating them.
To control root tie nematode (RKN), the most effective method is to use an integrated program. This includes a range of different techniques and apparatus.
Varieties Resistant to Nematode
When buying vegetable seed, make sure you get varieties that are free of nematode and RKN obstruction.
It is known that soils that are solid and rich in natural substance and design are less likely to attract nematodes. Before you plant, add a lot of natural matter to your soil. It might also be beneficial to add gypsum in certain cases. Solid soils are home to a variety of microorganisms that help keep nematode populations under tight control.
Mulching vegetables helps to reduce soil moisture and decrease soil temperature variations due to microorganism and plant stress. The ability to reduce plant pressure will help prevent them from succumbing to nematode infestations. Meanwhile, decreasing organism stress will ensure that the soil biota is healthy.
