Synopsis

Synopsis

Corn, cotton, and sorgo yields were increased while oats and clover yields were not affected by fumigation. The effect of fumigation was limited to the year of the treatment and nematode population built up rapidly after three months following treatment. Chemical composition of tissue was not significantly affected by nematode damage but total nutrient uptake expressed by the association of total growth and chemical composition was increased for those crops that responded to nematode control.
