Determine the feasibility of reduced nematicide chemical control when resistant potato is grown on Root-knot nematode infested ground
Plant resistant and susceptible potato in field where various types of nematode control strategies ranging from standard fumigatns (Telone and Vapam) to soft nematicides (mocap) to biofumigation (mustard meal) are the treatments and compare this with no treatment. Nematodes will be counted in soil samples and damage assessed in harevested tubers. Components of yield will also be meaured.
