At present, the most effective control of plant parasitic nematodes is through the use of chemical nematicides. These nematicides are relatively stable, broad spectrum pesticides that are applied in large dosages to the field. Difficulties with pesticide applications have arisen, however, as nematicides have been found to be a major source of ground water contamination in many locations worldwide. The problems of groundwater contamination, food safety, and worker protection from pesticides make the future use of these products uncertain.
