Abstract:

Experiments carried out to estimate the potential of incorporating garlic (Allium sativumm), onion (Allium cepa) and Lemon grass (Cymbopogon citratus) on root-knot nematode Meloidogyne javanica affecting tomato under glasshouse conditions and concentration at 1, 2 and 3% of each plant used. Plants un-inoculated by nematode keep as control in four replicates. Results elucidate that nematode population and tomato plant growth parameters affected by using the different plants. Observation of root system revealed that number of egg-masses, galls and females/root system affected markedly. The garlic at 3% give the highest reduction in nematodes parameters followed by onion 3% while the least one was Lemon grass at 1% comparing to untreated infected plants. Fresh root weight and shoot fresh and dry weights raise compared to control plants. Therefore, using these plants may provide a prime and importance method in the integrated nematode management (INM) practices as environmental safety and economical as anew alternative to originally chemical nematicides.
