Abstract: The root lesion nematode, Pratylenchus penetrans, is one of the most harmful plant parasites, responsible for worldwide productivity losses in a significant number of plant hosts. Generally, chemical control relies on synthetic compounds used through fumigation or direct contact, which offers a systemic protection. These control methods are costly and hazardous to the environment and to humans. Phytochemicals may play an important role in nematode control. The nematicidal activity of eight compounds that occur naturaly in plants, from two classes of compounds, was assessed at 2 mg/mL, for 24 h. Bioassays were performed following the standard direct contact methodology. P. penetrans was remarkably tolerant to the tested compounds, with mortality range between 1.0 and 5.8 %. To the best of our knowledge, the nematicidal activity of 4 phenolic compounds (catechin, caffeic acid, gallic acid and gentisic acid) was evaluated for the first time for P. penetrans.
