 en Greenhouse assessment of maize growth and yield response to nematode control with aldicarb
Riekert, H.F.


Aldicarb provided effective nematode control on maize planted in pots of nematode infested soil in the greenhouse. An average grain yield increase of 50.7 g per plant was recorded. No significant growth response to aldicarb was observed for the following criteria: plant length, number of internodes, length of internodes 1 - 5 and circumference of the fourth internode. No yield increase or growth response was obtained in soil with low levels of nematode infestation.

Nons avons montre que aldicarb peut etre utilise effectivement comme controle contre terre infeste par nematodes. L'experimence a ete finalisee en mais plante dans une serre. La moyenne de rendement de grain du mays a augmente a 50.7 g par plante. La reaction de croissance n'etait pas considerable. En ce qui concerne: la longeur des plantes, le nombre d'internodes longeur d 'internodes 1 - 5 et la circumference du quatrieme internode. Nous n'avons pas trouve une augmentation de rendement en terre avec peu d'infestation.
