The present studies based on the survey conducted and assessment made by the frequency of occurrence of economically important plant parasitic nematodes associated with Citrus crop. Samples were collected from roots and soil rhizosphere from 10 localities representing 3 districts namely Samba, Kathua and Rajouri for the study of nematodes infestations. The frequency of occurrence and populations varied from place to place which is simply indicative of the fact that the studied area is highly infested with different varieties of nematode species which ultimately affect the Citrus plant species of high grade quality of Citrus plantations.
