Keeping this in consideration, how do you treat nematodes?
To kill nematodes in soil, heat small quantities of moist soil to 140°F in the oven or by solarization. Heating soil in the oven over a time period needed to bake a medium-sized potato placed in the center of the soil is sufficient to kill nematodes; however, this is only practical for small quantities of soil.
Beside above, how do I control nematodes in my garden? If nematodes are causing damage, use one or more of the following management measures:
- Relocate the garden.
- Rotate crops.
- Grow nematode-resistant varieties.
- Grow early cool-season crops that are least affected.
- Destroy roots at harvest.
- Add organic matter.
- Solarize soil and leave fallow.
Secondly, how is root knot nematode transmitted?
Root knot nematode may be spread by planting infested tubers. Potato tubers may be infested but not show symptoms. Symptoms may develop when tubers are stored, particularly when exported to warmer climates where nematode numbers can rapidly increase.
