Cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) is one of the most important textile fibre crops in the world, and cotton seeds are also fed to animals and made into oil. Plant Parasitic nematodes known as Phyto-nematodes; a threat for the agricultural crops such as cotton.  Nematodes are very small, worm-like, multicellular animals adapted to living in water and soil. Some species of nematode are plant feeder and aerial feeder. Different methods such as cultural, biological, botanical etc. are used for the management of nematodes globally. The aim of present review is to evaluate the best method for controlling the nematodes. Botanicals nematicides are the best method for nematodes management because botanical have no harmful impact on human, animals and environment. New, more efficient and ecofriendly nematicides are needed along with machineries for more effective application.
