Manejo do solo e da irrigação no controle de Meloidogyne incognita em cultivo protegido
[Soil and water management in the control of Meloidogyne incognita in the greenhouse]
Fitopatologia Brasileira 31 (4), 405-407
Abstract: The population fluctuation of second-stage juveniles (J2) of M. incognita and their infectivity assessed by biotest were studied in the greenhouse, using plowed soil, irrigated or not, compared to control (unplowed and unirrigated) and to plots irrigated only, for 14 days. At seven days, the J2 population in the soil was significantly reduced only in plowed plots. However, the soil inoculum infectivity, in this period, was reduced only in plowed and irrigated plots. At 14 days, the J2 population in the soil was lower in plowed plots with or without irrigation, but lowest in plots only plowed.The infectivity of soil inoculum, in this period, was lowest in plowed and irrigated soil and highest in the control.
