Nematode Resistant Fruit Trees

    4 responses

Jogardener starts with ...
So I have nematodes 😯😔. I am going to grow a green mulch of cowpea and french marigolds. I have a Dwarf Mulberry, Irwin Mango, Manzanillo Olive and Arbequena Olive tree in there. Is there any way to save them?
What can I plant in subtropical SEQ that is a dwarf and nemotode resistant?

Many thanks for any feedback.

Hi Jo

Some cover crops like wheat, sudan grass and mustard plant can act as antibiotics and fumigant to the soil affected by nematodes. Plant any or in combination of these cover crops in the affected area and dig them in when they are about 45cm tall. Water them to speed up decomposition. While decomposing they release a chemical harmful to the nematodes. I think those natural fumigants and antibiotics are better than the toxic chemicals that we might unknowingly ingest while enjoying our fruitful harvest.

As Always....Happy Gardening :-)

You need crab/prawnshells and throw it on the soil or dig it in.

Woodvinegar also works in strong concentration, google it.

Great thank you everyone! I have planted marigolds, cowpea and japanese millet as well as adding chicken manure. I've done a milk and molasses soil drench....So I think I have exhausted all non-chemical avenues. I do have to say that when I pulled up some cowpea it had huge galls on it, so I wonder if I have inadvertently fed the nematodes? It was a recommended crop for getting rid of them on another site.
I'm just waiting for my marigolds to get tall enough before smashing them into the soil...the millet and cowpea is ready to go! Thanks again for your replies.
