Effect of nematicidal compounds on hatchability of sugar beet cyst nematode, Heterodera schachtii and its infective juveniles was investigated. The sugar beet cyst nematode was isolated from Chinese cabbage field in Samcheok in Korea. Acute toxicity of nematicidal compounds against infective juveniles was also tested to find the $LC_{50}$ by exposing juveniles to given dilutions of each compound. Hatchability and mortality of infective juveniles of H. schachtii were influenced by nematicidal compounds (Fluopyram 40% SC, imicyafos 30% SC, fosthiazate 30% SC, abamectine 1.68% SC, terthiophene, and Eclipta prostrata extract). Fluopyram and imicyafos yielded the lowest rates of hatching. Total hatched infective juveniles were significantly different among nematicidal compounds. Positive correlation in percentage reduction of hatching was observed in fluopyram. Furthermore, the highest mortality was also observed in the treatments of fluopyram and imicyafos ($LC_{50}$ of 0.0543 and 0.0178 ppm respectively). The study, therefore, demonstrated available alternative nematicidal compounds which could be used in the control of H. schachtii.
