Nacobbus aberrans is a plant-parasitic nematode that causes great losses in economically major vegetable crops of the American continent. Crops such as tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.), chili pepper (Capsicum annuum L.), potato (Solanum tuberosum L.), bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.), and sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.) are severely damaged. Nacobbus aberrans is regulated and represents a phytosanitary risk for horticulture, worldwide. Rational management of N. aberrans populations is crucial, preferably under a holistic approach that prioritizes the health of the ecosystem. In this sense, considering the negative effects of conventional nematicides, the study of eco-friendly management strategies is attractive. They include organic amendments, crop rotation, trap crops, antagonist plants, plant extracts, and genetic resistance, among others. For N. aberrans, several of practices showed successful experimental results. In this chapter, an overview of the biology of N. aberrans is addressed, and the organic management strategies that have been documented to date are reviewed.
