A total number of 33 nematode species of PPNs and VVNs belonging to 20 genera of Tylenchida, Aphelenchida and Dorylaimida (Nematoda) detected in Kyrgyzstan. These nematode species found associated with 6 plants from 7 different localities of the country. Entomopathogenic nematodes (EPNs), the beneficial nematodes of genera Steinernema, Heterorhabditis and Neosteinernema are frequently found as parasites of soil dwelling insect pests.
