In addition, the S2493 strain, which resulted in a reduction of 41.8% in the nematode population, shows the cry6 gene, which encodes the Cry6 toxin described as a nematicide (BRAVO et al., 2012; PALMA et al., 2014), corroborating the results we obtained in this assay.

We hypothesize that mimosine may have a major function as anti-cell proliferation of male germ cells since previous reports have demonstrated in other system about theinhibitory activities of many cancer cells, cell divisions, cell proliferations and differentiations, herbicidal, insecticide, and nematicide activities (Tawada, 1990; Wang et al.; Hughes & Cook; Krude; Chung et al.; Park et al.; Bottini-Luzardo et al.; Fallon; Nguyen & Tawata).
Currently, crop rotation, soil solarization, nematode-free seedlings, and the use of nematicides are adopted by Ghanaian farmers for managing nematodes [16, 19].
However, the indiscriminate use of nematicides can burden the production, endangers rural operators' health and also exert strong selection pressure on the organisms in the soil.
During the first reading, the presence of a high number of galls in the positive control treatment would be due to low activity of the nematicide at a single application.
is performed through the use of fumigant nematicides (Metam sodium and Dazomet) or non-fumigants (Cadusafos and Carbofuran) (BARRES et al, 2006; LINAN, 2009; ICA, 2014), perhaps by their effectiveness in reducing levels population and its availability on the market (ARAYA, 2003; PERRY et al., 2009).
