Worldwide, the amount of arable land is shrinking whilst the world population continues to grow. The gap between the expected and required world food production is getting bigger every day. An increase in crop productivity is crucial, however, minute soil-borne worms (called nematodes) are responsible for US$80 billion damage to valuable agricultural crops annually.
