Intercropping to Repel Nematodes?
This was my first year growing heirloom tomatoes, and what a disaster! Managed to nurse plants through this terrible summer only to lose them to root knot nematodes. Researched until I'm bleary-eyed, looking for a viable, preferably organic solution. (I hear all you veterans laughing.)
Anyway, here's my thought...considering that certain plants, i.e. brassicas, etc., are known to resist nematode infestation, would it be feasible to interplant, say mustard, with tomatoes as a REPELLENT? Or would the little buggers target the tomato roots anyway?
