The use of entomopathogenic nematodes is generally restricted to high value crops. The aim of COST action 819 is to enhance the use of these antagonists in biological control of soil-borne insect pests. In this report, expert contributions are given on soil ecology and nematode antagonists, on sampling methods and on transmission strategies. Field and laboratory data on foraging behaviour, infection strategies and genetic diversity in nematode populations are also presented.
