Abstract

The products of thermally-degraded Cymbopogon citratus were evaluated for nematicidal activity as an alternative of toxic synthetics. The products exhibited moderate nematicidal activity, but not as significantly (p<0.05) effective as carbofuran, a synthetic nematicide.  Thermally degraded products of fresh Cymbopogon citratus (CMGC/th/fresh) was the most promising at 90 mg/mL and could be used in place of the toxic synthetic nematicide.
