 en Economic feasibility of nematode control in dryland maize in South Africa
Riekert, H.F.


Eighteen nematicide trials were conducted over a period of four seasons in the western maize production area of South Africa. The effect of nematode infestation on maize yields in aldicarb and carbofuran treated plots compared with untreated controls was investigated. The study indicated that increased yield associated with nematicide application was not necessarily financially warranted. The present cost of nematicides registered for maize is the most important constraint in the economic control of nematodes under local conditions.

Dix huit essais ont ete menes pendant une periode de quatre saisons Sur un champ de Production du mais en Afrique du Sud. L'effet d 'infestation de nematodes des rendements du mais plante en serre traite avec aldicarb & carbofuran a ete analyse et compare avec des controles. Le resultat a indique qu'une augmentation avec l'application de nematicides etait necessariement et financierement exigee. Le cout actuel du nematocide requis pour le mais est la contrainte la plus importante dans le controle economique des nematodes suite aux conditions locales.
