The effect of the fungus, Paeciiomyces lilacinus on multiplication of the burrowing nematode, Radopholus similis infesting betel vine was studied. R. similis alone (100/plant) caused maximum damage to plant growth and recorded maximum multiplication of nematodes. P. lilacinus reduced the damaging effect of R. similis on inoculation. Simultaneous inoculation of both the organisms or inoculation of the fungus 25 days after nematode inoculation were not effective in reducing the damage. 

Control of plant-parasitic nematodes by Paecilomyces lilacinus and Monacrosporium lysipagum in pot trials

TLDR
Combined application of P. lilacinus and M. lysipagum alone was as effective as the combined application of fungi, particularly against M. javanica, which was the most effective treatment in controlling nematode populations.

Management of burrowing nematode , Radopholus similis in banana by using biocontrol agents

Field experiments were conducted during 2009-2010 and 2010-2012 for developing an effective methods for the management of burrowing nematode, Radopholus similis in banana. Results revealed that, the

Fungal and bacterial nematicides in integrated nematode management strategies

TLDR
Fungal and bacterial nematicides rank high among other biocontrol agents and can be included in integrated nematode management (INM) programs, and ways that make them complimentary or superior to chemical nematodes management methods were highlighted.
