New Nematode Data

Nematode results June 2009

Nematode Results December 2009

The nematode species was identified as Meloidogyne species.

No problems were encountered during mixing or application of any of the product formulations under test.

No crop safety issues were noted on any of the treatments at any of the assessment timings.

3 rates of each formulation were tested and the Vydate L (oxamyl) conventional chemical nematicide was applied at its standard label rate.

The trials were in Cucumber and root knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp) were the target nematode tested and were present in all 4 trials.

Crop vigour, numbers of ripe fruit and yield of harvested fruit are part of the standard assessments with recording nematode damage to the plant roots.

With regard to numbers of nematodes in the soil, the results indicated a slight dose response with both the 2BY31 and 2BY13 formulations, with the higher rates comparable with Vydate L.

The control achieved with the 2BY13 formulation was slightly better than the 2BY31 formulation.

The 2BY13 treatments generally achieved better crop vigour, than the equivalent rates of the 2BY31 formulation, with the highest rates similar to Vydate L.

All treatments achieved a significant increase in the total yield of Cucumber fruit in Tonnes/ha compared to the untreated.

Significant dose responses were achieved with both the 2BY13 and 2BY31 formulations, with the highest rates achieving comparable yields than the standard treatment Vydate L.

Similar trends were apparent in the number of fruit harvested, with the highest rates of both Terpene formulations achieving a slightly greater number of ripe fruit than the Vydate L standard and significantly better than the untreated.

Crop vigour, numbers of ripe fruit and yield of harvested fruit are part of the standard assessments with recording nematode damage to the plant roots.

Dose responses were apparent for both the 2HY31 and 2HY13 treatments.

The 2HY13 treatments generally achieved slightly better crop vigour, than the equivalent rates of the 2HY31 formulation.

The increase in crop vigour achieved with both the 2HY13 and 2HY31 formulations was significantly greater than the standard treatment Vydate L at the later assessment timings.

With regard to numbers of nematodes in the soil, the results indicated a slight dose response with both the 2HY31 and 2HY13 formulations, with the higher rates comparable with Vydate L.

All treatments achieved a significant increase in the total yield of Cucumber fruit in Tonnes/ha compared to the untreated.

Significant dose responses were achieved with both the 2HY13 and 2HY31 formulations, with the highest rates achieving higher yields than the standard treatment Vydate L.

No significant differences were observed between comparable rates of both the Terpene formulations.

Similar trends were apparent in the number of fruit harvested, with the highest rates of both Terpene formulations achieving a slightly greater number of ripe fruit than the Vydate L standard and significantly better than the untreated.
