ABSTRACT
The article reports on the challenges of the vegetable growers to control root-knot nematodes in Texas. Plant pathologist Karl Steddom of AgriLife Extension explains the agricultural effects of the root-knot nematodes, which can reduced the yields of vegetable plantation such as pumpkins, tomatoes, and cucumbers. However, Steddom suggests vegetable farmers to use biological controls as the most effective option to mitigate root-knot nematodes.
