The present study conducted for the investigation of betelvine crop which was attacked by plant-parasitic nematodes. Surveys of the betelvine conservatories, carried out in Karachi, Thatta, Hub area and Ketty Bunder, showed that betelvine crop was attacked by nematodes. It was observed that the use of various mixtures of fertilizer and nematicide decrease the nematode population in betelvine conservatories, while the population of fungi increased the betelvine crop for a short time and later nematode population increased. The rotation of crops can be selected in nematode infested soil.
