Aldicarb at 0.86, 1.72, 2.31, 2.88, and 4.62 kg a.i./ha was used to control Pratylenchus penetrans on navy bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) in Michigan. All treatments significantly reduced population densities of P. penetrans. Soil residues of aldicarb were directly related to the rate of application, and the residues decreased throughout the growing season. Eighty days after application, aldicarb soil residues were detectable only at application rates of 2.88 and 4.62 kg a.i./ha.
