Abstract

Water shortages have increased growers interest in dip irrigation. The use of drip irrigation in
agriculture has increased rapidly during the past 25 years. The drip irrigation has been used to
deliver fertilizers and pesticides and there are increasing number of studies on the application of
nematicides or other pest control agents via drip irrigation. The results of the experiments conducted
so far for the management of nematodes through chemicals and bioagents; insect pests through
entomopathogenic nematodes using drip irrigation system are encouraging and it is inferred that
the application of nematicides through drip irrigation is simpler, safer and more cost effective than
conventional nematicides application methods. In the following we summarize the results of
experiments conducted for the management of nematodes and certain insect pests with other details
relevant to drip irrigation system. The information should aid future assessment of drip irrigation
system in the management of wide range of nematodes in various crops
