Abstract


Carbofuran, diazinon, phorate, prophos and sebuphos, each at the rate of 0.5, 1 and 2 per cent a.i. (W/W) were tested as seed treatments for the control of Meloidogyne incognita infecting green gram under field condition. Each of the chemicals was effective in decreasing nematode numbers and root-knot development, with consequent increase in plant growth. The best result was obtained with carbofuran at 2 per cent a.i.
