Biological Nematode Control Agent: Green Land
Small-scale farms and household gardeners can benefit from using the green land biological nematicide. The biological nematicide aids in the suppression of root-knot nematodes and is based on a particular strain of naturally occurring fungus.
Nematodes, which are microscopic parasitic worms that reside in soil or water, are eliminated with Green land nematicide. Despite being minuscule, threadlike creatures may do much harm when they feed on plant tissue or roots.
Root-knot nematode, Remiform nematode, Cyst nematode, Golden cyst nematode, Citrus nematode, and Lesion nematode are the pests that need to be controlled.
Green land; Paecilomyces lilacinus CGAIPFPS-01 is extremely parasitic to common plant-infecting nematodes at all phases of development, particularly the eggs. As nematodes in the vermiform stage move through the soil, the fungus’ spores also cling to their cuticle. The spores grow, pierce the nematodes’ cuticles, and devour them. Through bodily openings like the anus and vulva, the fungus’ hyphae can also enter nematodes’ eggs, juveniles, males, and females. The growing fungus kills the nematodes by feeding on their internal organs. The fungus parasitizes the nematodes.
Use a 16-liter Knapsack sprayer to apply 25–30g of Green Land nematicide, or apply it directly to the soil and water it.
How to Lessen Nematode Damage
One non-toxic method to lessen the harm done by nematodes is the addition of manure, compost, or another organic material. Organic matter offers a healthy environment that increases the likelihood of plant survival even in the presence of nematodes by enhancing soil structure and water retention.
Roots can become strong and nematode-resistant with the aid of deep, infrequent irrigation. Avoid using high-nitrogen fertilizers since they cause lush growth and roots that are vulnerable to nematodes.
Additionally, growing plants in above-ground containers might lessen nematode damage. Use a potting mix that hasn’t been contaminated by common garden soil and is clean.
