ABOUT NEMATODES USED IN NEMASHAKTI
Nematodes (EPN) are beneficial micro-organisms (parasites) that kill insect pests, they attack them by sniffing their scent. They possess unique ability to actively seek and ambush their prey. They enter the insect pests through body openings like mouth, nostrils, anus or directly through the body wall. Once inside, they release highly specialized bacteria (symbiotic) into the insect pest, (these bacteria multiply rapidly causing septicima) poisoning and killing it within 24-48 hours. They make the insect their host and finally exit it after multiplying in lacs to begin their search for a new insect. The Nematodes continue to survive and parasitize new insects for several months. Depending upon the pest(s) targeted and the method of application, it can take from 7 -10 days normally to 30 days in some pests for the results to be seen.
