Majestene is a liquid nematicide that can be applied pre-plant, at planting and in-season for season-long reduction of nematode populations and galling in potatoes, strawberries, tomatoes, peppers, cucurbits, corn and onions. Growers have seen notable success in using Majestene on potato and onion acres in the Pacific Northwest, and several specialty crops in Florida and Georgia.
