Describes entomopathogenic and slug parasitic nematodes as potential biocontrol agents in crop insect and slug pest management.

Addressing research on these two nematodes from tropical, subtropical and temperate countries, it covers the new techniques and major developments regarding mass production, formulation, application, commercialization and safety measures.
