Abstract: Microplot and greenhouse experiments were conducted to evaluate the effects of soil Incorporation of the nematophagous fungus Arthrobotrys conoides and green alfalfa mulch on the population dynamics of Meloidogyne incognita on corn. Reproduction of M. incognita and incidence of root galling were reduced by the addition of A. conoides and/or green alfalfa in all tests. Number of juveniles were reduced by as much as miuli as 84% and eggs were fewest in early to mid season soil samples from microplots. Yields increased in treatments with A. conoides and/or green alfafa in greenhouse tests and in the microplot tests in 1979. No interaction was found between the fungus and green alfafa in the reduction of the nematode population.
