need for economically viable biological control agents that can conserve long-term soil fertility while reducing nematode damage (Chitwood, 2003). Commercially available biological control agents can be divided into three categories; the first contains live nematode-antagonistic organisms, like MeloCon

Summary – In Uganda, banana ( Musa spp.) production is constrained by the burrowing nematode Radopholus similis . Non-pathogenic, endophytic Fusarium oxysporum has been isolated from healthy banana plants, and several strains have shown potential as biological control agents against R. similis . Plant
