In many cropping soils of south-eastern Australia the presence of nematodes limits field crop production... Recent reports by Murray and Brennan (2009 a & b) estimated that in south-eastern Australia alone, nematodes are currently reducing wheat and barley production by 4.9% ($98 million) and 5.1% ($42 million) respectively, with losses in excess of 20% possible in the absence of appropriate control strategies...
