In vitro experiments on Ditylenchus dipsaci and Pratylenchus penetrans demonstrated that fenamiphos in aqueous solution immobilizes the nematodes within a relatively short time, by blocking neuroenzymes. Duration of the immobility phase varies with fenamiphos concentration, but it always culminates in mortality also at a low dose. The significance of this effect for field use of fenamiphos is that even at such low rates of 7.5 to 10 kg a.i./ha, nematodes are quickly inactivated and rendered incapable of invading plant roots. As fenamiphos remains residually active in the soil for several weeks, the nematode population is gradually killed off. Therefore, the mode of action of fenamiphos and its behavioural characteristics in soil are of special economic importance to nematode control.
