In Pakistan maize (Zea mays L.) is the third important cereal crop after wheat and rice. Maize accounts for 4.8% of the total cropped area and 3.5% of the value of agricultural output. The grain and fodder yield is reduced by a number of diseases including plant parasitic nematodes. Nematode pathogenicity trials, organic and chemical control measures have been discussed in detail. The information is useful for nematologists, plant pathologists, students, teachers and research workers in this field.
