Previous projectsEfficacy of Syngenta seed treatments against free-living nematodes
Free-living nematodes, Trichodorus and Longidorus, cause the condition known as Docking disorder in sugar beet. It is usually confined to sandy soils which allow nematodes to move easier in the soil, especially if the soil is wet in May. Current control measures rely on carbamate granules applied at drilling, but these are being phased out in EU reviews. There is an urgent need for replacement control measures. This project addresses that issue.
