Tagetes erecta, T. patula and T. minuta, when grown in M. javanica infested soil for 42 to 70 days in pots, reduce the nematode populations to low levels. T. minuta, a weed which grows vigorously in Rhodesia, has high levels of a-terthienyl in its roots but this compound, at dosages as high as 200 parts per million, when mixed in infested soil does not control M. javanica. Root-knot larvae fail to penetrate the roots of marigolds in any appreciable numbers and those that enter do not develop beyond the infective second stage larval form.
