The aim of this study was to assess the nematicidal activity of different essential oils from medicinal and aromatic plants for use in nematode management. Essential oils of Eugenia caryophyllata, Origanum compactum, Origanum vulgare, Thymus matschiana and Thymus vulgaris showed nematicidal activity against Ditylenchus dipsaci.
