Cultural Practices for Root-Knot and Root-Lesion Nematode Suppression in Vegetable Crop Rotations
Geographic Adaptability: The cultural practices described in this publication were evaluated for nematode control in field and small plot studies in Maryland. The practices described in this fact sheet should be effective in mid-Atlantic vegetable crop production systems where the southern root-knot nematode is the most important root-knot species and where growing season and crop rotations are similar to Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
