Biology, Identification and Control of Root-Knot Nematodes (Meloidogyne species ); A. L. Taylor, J. N. Sasser, a cooperative publication of the Department of Plant Pathology, North Carolina State University and the United States Agency for International Development (1978)
This overview is from 1978 and therefore the chemical control part might not be state of the art but it has a lot of interesting and good information and trial results. It was written in light of the “International Meloidogyne Project”. This project aimed to improve crop protection capabilities of developing nations and to advance knowledge about one of the world’s most important groups of plant-parasitic nematodes.
