SOIL DEGREE DAY ACCUMULATION FOR NEMATODE CONTROL 
RUSSET NORKOTAH, SLV RESEARCH CENTER - 2013
For root-knot nematode control, Vydate applications should begin at 800 Degree-days (DD5Celcius)
or 1,440 DD41Fahrenheit.  To estimate that date, add the number of "Total  DD" on the day you planted
to 800 (or 1,440).  Where that value occurs in the "Total DD" column estimates the date on
which 800 DD5C or 1,440 DD41F will occur in that field.
