Granules are a chemical pesticide against nematodes. Granules do not kill nematodes, but paralyze the nematodes temporarily. After a few weeks, the nematodes recover and can still cause damage. However, the crop can get a head start, thus limiting the damage. Granules can reduce yield losses and limit the reproduction of nematodes. Whether the application of granules is profitable depends on the type and quantity of nematodes and the crop. For high infestations, only a full-field application is profitable.
