About this book

Nematode pests of crops can cause major losses of revenue for producers. This book covers control of the most important nematode pests of the world's crops, by all known, effective means.

"This important book reviews information that has accumulated over the past 50 years on the biology and control of plant parasitic nematodes. Chapters are organized according to where in the plant a nematode appears. Thus, there are chapters on nematodes of seed-gall and leaf, stem and trunk, ectoparasites of roots, semi-endoparasites of roots, migratory endoparasites of roots and tubers, and sedentary endoparasites of roots and tubers. . . .This is a fine book that will be the standard for nematode control over the next few years." --IPM Practitioner


Introduction to plant parasitic nematodes; seed gall and leaf nematodes; stem and trunk nematodes; ectoparasitic nematodes of roots; semi-endoparasitic nematodes of roots; migratory endoparasitic nematodes of roots and tubers; sedentary endoparasitic nematodes of roots and tubers; conclusion and future prospects for nematode control.
