Reniform nematode

Rotylenchulus reniformis

Some plants are resistant to this nematode. In susceptible taxa, chemical control is one of the most common management practices. Nematicides before and after planting can be effective. Intercropping and crop rotation, especially with resistant or non-host plants, is used as cultural control to improve soil, increase antagonistic microorganisms, and reduce nematode populations. French marigold (Tagetes patula) and sunn hemp (Crotalaria juncea) are recommended for these uses. The fungus Purpureocillium lilacinum has been used as an agent of biological pest control against the nematode in chickpea.
