Sesame’s Impact on Root-Knot Nematode Populations

By: Norman Harrell, Tommy Batts, Shannon Henriquez Inoa, Adrienne Gorny, David Suchoff

Soils were collected from three farms in Wilson County before and after a sesame crop. These farms have a history of root-knot nematode and the growers were interested to see how sesame might impact nematode populations. Nematode populations dropped between 81% and 97%, depending on the farm. These results indicate that sesame may play an important role as an IPM tool to reduce nematode populations in traditional row crop rotations.
