Prices may vary base on location. In Onitsha Anambra state, Rocket 500g is N1500. Oxamyl 1kg is N3000. Velum Prime 250ml is N32000.

It is costly oo. One(250ml) will cover 1 acre. Application thru soil/root. Its more than just a nematicide, also fungicidal. See the image below for dosage.

I apply it in a circle hole round the plant when they are still seedlings (within 1-2 days after germination). Apply and cover with soil. Irrigate as soon as possible.

To prevent nematodes from becoming resistant to nematicides, don't just use only one type all the time. Rotate them.

Pls what about liquid Chlorpyrifos.  Can it be used instead of the solid one?

They put it at 1g/m2. But I just do it as shown in the picture below because I don't have the applicator that can do that.
