Plant parasitic nematodes are a major constraint to crop production globally. Root knot nematode (Meloidogyne spp.) in particular is considered amongst the most destructive of plant-parasitic nematodes in vegetable production. Root knot nematode is often controlled by fumigant or non-fumigant nematicides. However, there are now relatively few chemicals available to growers, and there is continual pressure on those that remain, as many have high mammalian toxicity and/or potential for environmental harm. One of the most commonly used nematicides (fenamiphos) in Australia has recently been reviewed by the APVMA and its use has been withdrawn on many crops. This project was initiated to develop options for growers to manage root knot nematode effectively, with, or without, the use of chemicals.
