From: Field control of Meloidogyne incognita and root rot disease infecting eggplant using nematicide, fertilizers, and microbial agents

Treatments Concentrations Methods and time of applications
A: Single treatments
1. Untreated control
2. Bacillus thuringiensis Bt 2 × 106 CFU/ml 20 ml/of the suspension/hill at planting
