What is Bio-Nematon?

Bio-Nematon is a biological insecticide based on a selective strain of naturally- occurring entomopathogenic fungus Paecilomyces lilacinus. The product contains spores and mycelial fragments of P. lilacinus. It is available in liquid (1x109CFU's/ml) and powder (1x108 CFU's/gm) formulation.

Mode of Action

The spore of this fungus acts by infecting, parasitizing and killing eggs, juveniles and young adults of most phytophagous nematode species. When the spore of Bio-Nematon comes in contact with different stages of the nematodes, they germinate and grow and proliferate throughout the nematode eventually paralysing the nematode leading to the death of the nematode.

Dose and Method of Application

Soil Application: Bio-Nematon 8 Litres or 10 kg / hectare to be mixed with organic fertilizer / well decomposed organic manure / field soil / any other locally available agriculturally usable organic carrier and applied around the rhizosphere uniformly for existing crops in the field. The Bio-Nematon can be incorporated into the soil either mechanically or through profuse watering the field. It can be incorporated in the field as a pre-plant treatment, or at planting and emergence stage, or immediately after transplanting.

Drip System: Bio-Nematon 8 Litres or 10 kg / hectare is to be mixed in 1000 Litres of water and filter the contents well to separate out extraneous particle if any. After filtering with appropriate filters it can be incorporated into the soil through the drip irrigation systems during the pre or post planting stage.

The frequency of applications also depends on the Nematode population.

In the case of high nematode population pressures, and in perennial crops, multiple applications are recommended.

Preparation of Spray Solution

Suspend 8 Litres or 10 kg of Bio-Nematon in 1000 Litres of water. Stir well and apply through irrigation system after filtering with filters.


Bio-Nematon compatible with neem and other bio-pesticide products. Do not tank mix Bio-Nematon with fungicides / Nematicides.


  • Does not create resistance, resurgence and residues problem.
  • Does not affect the natural enemies and so, offers a long lasting pest control.
  • Forms a good molecule for use in IPM programme and thereby helps to reduce the pesticide load.


  • Bio-Nematon controls effectively the economically important nematodes like root knot nematodes, burrowing nematodes, cyst nematodes, lesion nematodes etc., among wide range of crops.
  • Helps to increase the productivity by containing the nematode pests.
