Nematodes are usually a bad word for producers. In this episode of Making Sense of Biologicals, USDA’s Dr. David Shapiro is back to inform growers that there are also beneficial nematodes as well. Some of the microscopic worms can be a useful management tool against many pests. Shapiro said often-used nematicides could harm those good nematodes, and when they are in the soil, they can work in synergy with other products that are already part of your pest control system.
