The article discusses the impact of the possible phase-out of insecticide and nematocide Temik on farmers in the U.S. Bayer CropScience Ltd. has announced that the production of Temik has been halted. According to Texas AgriLife Extension plant pathologist Jason Woodward, some product will be available in 2011 but many of the products may not be available to Texas producers. The article indicates that the phase-out of Temix will affect farmers with root-knot nematode infestations.

    Abstract: Root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.) constrain the production of high value vegetable crops, such as tomato, on smallholder farms in Kenya. For several years, control of root-knot nematodes largely depended on the use of synthetic nematicides, most of which have been banned due to...

    The incorporation of dry neem leaves into the soil significantly enhanced the yield of uninoculated eggplant, but aldicarb treatments at 4 kg a.i./ha proved to be phytotoxic. Inoculation with root-knot nematode Meloidogyne incognita (1500 J2/plant) caused a significant decrease in both the plant...
