Nabam in water solution retards hatching of Meloidogyne eggs. In soil nabam increases egg hatching of Meloidogyne and Heterodera tabacum, indicating that a decomposition product in soil is a hatching factor. Because of this attribute, combining nabam with a nematocide increases control of Meloidogyne by exposing more larvae to the nematocide while it is at maximum efficiency.
