Nematodes possess many attributes of an ideal biological control agent: they are environmentally safe, can be produced in large scale bioreactors, are easily applied using standard spraying equipment. Most of the species are compatible with chemical pesticides allowing integrated pest management programs for crop protection. The main aim of the COST Action 819 is to promote the use of EPN's for a sustainable agriculture in Europe. New aims are now the promising ways opened by an orally toxemic action provided by the symbionts themselves.
