One of the most important factors threatening vegetable production is the plant parasitic nematodes in greenhouses. The determination of the infection rate of root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne spp. (Tylenchida: Meloidogynidae) was aimed in existing greenhouse areas of Simav district. A total of 60 greenhouses were examined randomly in surveys carried out in 2015 and 2016. Thus, the rate of vegetables roots infection with nematodes were investigated. A total of 81.7% of greenhouses made grounded agriculture was determined to be infected with root-knot nematodes. Some farmers have been forced to soilless agriculture because greenhouse is infected with especially these nematodes and soil-borne diseases. It was observed that 26.7% of the total greenhouses made soilless agriculture.
