Among the treatment combinations, pre-soaking of bulbs in plain water for overnight followed by hotwater treatment at 50ºC for 20 min. + two sprayings with monocrotophos 36SL at 0.15% at 30 days interval and the second and the third year crop receiving three sprays with monocrotophos 36SL at 0.15% at 30 days interval was found more effective for managing this nematode problem in tuberose.
