On the production level globally nematodes are one of the most destructive issues causing over 5% of the total crop loss and exceeding 10 billion USD in losses annually. For potato producers nematode harm is even more devastating, nematodes can decrease potato yields on average by 20%. Some species of nematodes, like pale cyst nematodes are able to cut potato yields by 50% or more without appropriate treatment!
And it’s more than local, it is a global problem -  the main potato-producing countries Australia, USA, India, China, and Russia have had many waves of potato cyst nematode epidemics. As a result – decreasing yields and lower production of potatoes. For the global potato industry nematodes are costly burdens of production; they cause significant constraint on micro and macro levels, causing losses to farmers and a threat to global food security.

While usage of chemical crop protection products to control nematodes on potato are getting more contradictive for numerous reasons, farmers are turning to biological products because they are safe, efficient and economical to use.
