Influence of some plant extract, chemical and biological control on Root-knot nematode Meloidogyne javanica

Ibrahim Esa Taher


Three plants extracts, Bio-health as bio-control and common nematicide Vaydate assayed to know their effect on Root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne javanica). Tomato seedlings used as host for nematode infection. Extract of chopped leaves of oleander (Nerium oleander), cloves of garlic (Allium sativum), roots of Tagets (Tagetes erecta) used as natural plant extracts. Results revealed that vaydate was more effective in decreasing infection criteria in plant extract Tageta and Garlic extract were more effective and reduced egg mass and Root-knot followed by Oleander and Bio-ahealth,
