Throughout Australia root-knot nematodes are considered major pests of fruiting vegetables and cucurbits, with annual losses in horticulture estimated to be worth $100-200 million (Stirling et al., 1992). Direct feeding damage and use of carbohydrates, disruption of the root systems architecture, transmission of viruses and root-rot complexes with fungi are the main reasons for crop losses.
Syngenta’s TERVIGO® is registered for the safe and effective control of root-knot nematodes in a range of fruiting vegetable crops including tomatoes, capsicums, chillies, eggplant, and cucurbit crops (refer to the product label for the full list of crops).
