About this book

Highlighting the use of biocontrol agents as an alternative to chemical pesticides in the management of plant parasitic nematodes, Biocontrol Agents of Phytonematodes reviews the current progress and developments in the field. Tactful and successful exploitation of each biocontrol agent, i.e. nematophagous fungi, parasitic bacteria, predaceous mites, rhizobacteria, mycorrhiza and predaceous nematodes, has been described separately. The contributors are 23 eminent nematologists and their information has been compiled in 19 chapters.

"Overall this volume will be useful for all scientists and students involved in phytonematode studies vis-a-vis the developmental aspects, biocontrol approaches and commercialization of products with a significant emphasis towards environmental safety aspects."
