Nematode Management in Plants

Pravin Chandra Trivedi (Editor)
Synopsis Nematodes represent a unique challenge to agricultural research, in that they combine the potential for serious reductions in growth and yield in a wide range of crop plants, often with rather nonspecific and easily misdiagnosed symptoms. Development of the concept of pest management and their implementation have led to a greater appreciation of the need for a wide range of tactics for nematode control. The present book "Nematode management in Plants" provides an authoritative review of many aspects of nematode control and progress in the field of nematode management programme. The volume contains eighteen articles covering application of cropping sequences, plant products and botanicals, latex, bioagents and biological control practices for the management of nematode pests. Topics covering use of Azotobacter, Bacillus thuringiensis and VAM fungi for reducing nematode pests have been specially included to project their role in the present century. Information on integrated nematode management have been included with special emphasis on biocontrol management practices. This book will be useful to plant pathologist, nematologist, research and extension workers, teachers and students.
