Cadusafos and fosthiazate were applied at the rate of 1.8 g a.i./6$\m^2$ as pre-plant or pre-plant+post-plant treatments on winter-grown oriental melon in a greenhouse soil infested with Meloidogyne arenaria. Nematicides reduced root-knot nematode population from 35 to 90% compared with control; fosthiazate was better than cadusafos (P = 0.003) and fosthiazate pre-plant+post-plant application reduced nematode population densities as much as 90%. Nematicides increased yield in an average of 23% (11-38%) in May, 39% (2-65%) in June, and 31% (12-46%) for the total (P = 0.085). The residue in the fruit of oriental melon by post-plant treatment of fosthiazate exceeded maximum residue limit of 0.2ppm, while the Cadusafos residue was below the limit. It is concluded that fosthiazate cannot be used as a post-plant treatment in winer-grown oriental melon with overall consideration, i. e., danger of residue, value of melon, costs of nematicide, consumer demand on safer agricultural products, and effects of fallow.
