Abstract:

Agricultural production is continuously reduced worldwide every year due to biotic stress including nematodes. Therefore millions of dollars have been invested in efforts to control the menace caused by the biotic stress. Various natural and artificial methods of control are being practiced for protecting plants from the damage caused by insects, plant disease causing organisms and phytonematodes. Among different methods used for plant pathogens control the use of pesticides is the most prevalent and common practice everywhere. In recent years, environmental hazards caused by excessive use of pesticides have been widely discussed. Therefore, the agricultural fields are searching for alternative measures against pesticides.
