A glasshouse experiment was conducted to study the efficacy of organic amendments and nematicides on Meloidogyne javanica infecting tomato. Results revealed that chopped neem leaves when applied in combinations with NPK, compost, phorate and carbofuran were found effective in reducing root-knot infestation. These treatments also resulted in significant increases in plant growth parameters. But combined application of chopped neem leaves with NPK + compost + phorate + carbofuran were found most effective in promoting plant growth parameters and reducing root-knot infestation.


Key words

Organic soil amendments, nematicides, management, Meloidogyne javanica, tomato.
