AbstractCultural practices of long standing still are very important in managing plant-parasitic nematodes. Selected literature and examples of cultural practices are included with their advantages and disadvantages under different conditions. The lists of nonhost plants for various nematodes should be useful in crop rotation. Crop rotation, organic soil amendments, fallowing, and residual root destruction are the most popular types of cultural practices, whereas trap and antagonistic crops, flooding and other practices have had limited use. Implementation of each practice with the necessary precautions and promising future research are discussed.
