The aim of the present study was to carry out a search for phytonematodes to verify the abundance and frequency of nematodes present in a peach orchard at eight years of age. Soil and root samples from nine peach rootstocks were collected in an experimental area in the district of Capão do Leão, in the State of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. After extraction, the samples were evaluated under an optical microscope. Nematodes of the following genera were identified in the samples: Meloidogyne spp.
