growers of deciduous fruit, nut & shade trees
for commercial growers
& the home garden
trees sold to commercial growers must be produced under CA Dept of Food & Agriculture (CDFA) Nematode Certification Program
CDFA’s Nematode Certification Program requires soil treatment or nematode sampling
soil treatment must eliminate nematodes to 4 to 5 feet deep, for 1 to 2 years
3 soil treatments used in CA for control of nematodes in field grown deciduous trees:
also effectively controls weeds
as high as 33% (strawberries up to 50% “pic”)
but sprinkler application limited as it’s
cumbersome application rig
crop rotation and/or extended fallow
-maybe OK--limited by time required
mechanical (super-heated water/steam)
-questionable efficacy & cost?
Star Wars devices
-cost? & soil ecology concerns
-little to no interest due to phytotoxicity
-tends to explode
Nemacur, Vydate & Furidan (sp?)
-registered for use in CA via drip
but not used due to impracticality
brassicas & other veges
-insufficient nematode kill
and controlling weeds & disease
-the ultimate solution?
