Nematode suppressive crops reduce the population of plant-parasitic nematodes below damaging levels upon their planting or incorporation into the soil. These crops suppress the nematode population either by acting as a poor host, trap crop, cover crop or antagonistic crops. Nematode suppressive crops are one of the best options for nematode management in various crops in view of sustainable agricultural production systems. This method is economical and easily accepted by farmers as it can be practiced with normal agronomical practices in crop cultivation. In addition to the nematode control, it also improves the nutrient status and other physicochemical properties of soil. Though the use of nematode suppressive crops may not eliminate the plant-parasitic nematodes in the soil, it helps to reduce the nematode population enough to allow production of nematode susceptible crops and well fits in the Integrated nematode management package.
