T. D'Addabbo

Abstract


Literature on organic amendments was reviewed from 1982 up to 1994. A total number of 221 papers was found, confirming the interest of research in this nematode control method. Most of work was still concentrated in developing countries. Organic materials, crops and nematode species involved in trials were examined. Oil cakes were the most frequently used and efficacious amendments, but also green manures and agro-industrial wastes were largely experimented. An increasing attention was dedicated to the mechanisms of the nematicidal action of these materials.
