Plant-parasitic nematodes are among the most important yield-limiting pathogens that affect cotton production in the southern United States. As result of this importance the chemical industry has marketed and registered a few new nematicides in cotton. This presentation will introduce these new nematicides, provide some information on efficacy, and evaluate how they perform in the field compared to other standard seed applied and in-furrow applied nematicides.​
