Review article on underground menace: Unveiling the impact of plant parasitic nematodes on rosaceous plants in Kashmir valley

Plant parasitic nematodes are tiny, spherical worms that feed on the stems, leaves, and roots of plants, posing a serious danger to global agriculture. Especially in horticultural nurseries and trees of various fruit varieties, their sneaky presence immediately reduces fruit yield in apple, pear, and peach plants while also assisting in the spread of slow decline disease. Smallholder agriculture faces a fresh and pressing problem as numerous nematode species destroy economically significant crops. Integrated pest management (IPM) techniques and the use of nanoparticles (NPs) have the potential to alleviate this problem by increasing farmer acceptability and productivity. A potentially effective strategy to control plant parasitic nematodes, protect agricultural productivity, and encourage sustainable farming practices is the merging of IPM with NPs.
