Commercial microbial antagonist formulations performed poorly against Tylenchulus
semipenetrans and Paratrichodorus lobatus compared to the nematicides
Aldicarb, cadusafos and metalaxyl (Walker
and Morey, 1999a)
Paratrichodorus lobatus reached high levels in pots containing
unamended soil but was not detected in pots containing soils amended with Brassica cultivars Ebony and Indian mustards, and Rangi rape residues
(Walker and Morey, 1999b).
