Some plant extracts for the control of the root-knot nematode Meloidogyne javanica
AbstractIn many countries commercial nematicides are expensive and therefore plant species exhibiting nematicidal properties have been investigated for nematode control (Nelmes, 1970; Masood and Husain, 1976; Hean and David, 1979; Husain et al., 1984). The use of plant extracts to control plant parasitic nematodes has not previously been investigated in Iraq. The study described here was undertaken with extracts of several locally occurring plant species tested against the root-knot nematode Meloidogyne javanica (Treub) Chitw. on tomato.
