Carrot Nematodes

Crop: Carrot
Variety: Super Kuroda
Date or month when noticed: November 2022
Location: Medak district, Telangana
Climate: Sunny
Possible cause: Looks like Root knot nematode Meloidogyne sp., but it appears such symptoms can be a result of multiple causes.

Thoughts welcome if you have a different view on the cause and on organic control measures.

That’ a pure multiple nematode attack…

Plant marigold as intercrop.
Solarize soil before next planting.
Incorporate Trichoderma in preplanting tillage with sufficient organic manure.
