Abstract

Investigates whether using nematodes can control plum curculio in peach orchards in Quincy, Florida. One factor investigated was if nematodes would effectively control plum curculio in an alternate host, Prunus angustifolia. The article concludes that soil applications of nematodes can control plum curculio at a high level but the timing of application and strain of nematode is important.
