Nematodes are round small worms found almost in every type of environment. Plant parasitic nematodes cause great damage to crops and trees and as a result loss in yield and plant heath occurred. Plant parasitic nematode infestation goes undetected and untreated because of less awareness. A survey was conducted to estimate the ratio of plant parasitic nematodes associated with Walnut (Juglans regia L.) in different areas of Hazara Division, KP, Pakistan. District Abbottabad, Mansehra and Kohistan were surveyed. Soil samples from these districts were collected and processed through Bearmann funnel technique. Nematodes were quantitatively analyzed. Ratio of plant parasitic nematodes and saprophytic nematodes was analyzed and calculated. Results showed that samples from Abbottabad and Mansehra had plant parasitic nematodes in greater ratio than saprophytic nematodes while Kohistan samples were found saprophytic. District Abbottabad showed 40% while district Mansehra sowed 60% plant parasitic nematodes.Helicotylenchus sp. were found in abundance from Abbottabad and Mansehra. Data was plotted in histograms and ANOVA was done which showed that P value was significant. P value for the effect of Carbofuran in Mansehra and Abbottabad was 0.0001 and 0.0001 while for poultry manure it was 0.0001 and 0.0009 respectively. Carbofuran and Poultry manure were used for the management of plant parasitic nematodes. Carbofuran totally eradicate the nematode population while poultry manure reduced the population to a remarkable point. Therefore both were found effective but poultry manure s more environment friendly in nature.
