Biological control of nematodes using rhizosphere micro-organisms was considered in several reviews to be a potential management tactic and an effective alternative to nematicides
(Kerry, 2000; Mukhtar et al.
Cis and trans-protopinium a novel nematicide

are used to eliminate plant-parasitic nematodes and are majorly delivered in two forms, namely, contact nematicides
Enhanced biodegradation of nematicides

Effect of three organophosphorous nematicides
on non-target nematodes and soil microbial community.
VBC's investment in Research and Development program has led to a rich pipeline of products which include bioinsecticides and a nematicide
Conventional banana farms use protective plastic bags that have been impregnated with insecticides (typically chlorpyrifos), apply nematicides
and fungicides via cropduster or by injection into the soil, and use herbicides to kill competing plants.
Comparative efficacy of nematicides
and nematicidal plants on root-knot nematodes.
As much as 250 types of chemicals are used in agriculture, specifically 100 types of insecticide, 50 types of weed killer, 50 types of fungicide, 20 kinds nematicides
and 30 kinds of other chemical substance (Edwards 1973).
Using this tall fescue as a preplant cover crop treatment may allow growers to reduce the use of chemical nematicides
Tactics for management of plant-parasitic nematodes continue to rely on nematicides
for suppression of population densities.
There is a general trend to control this disease by using chemical nematicides
such as Nemcur and Furadan and biological control techniques were also found to be promising methods against root-knot nematodes.
