Maize cyst nematode, Heterodera zeae causes significant losses in Rajasthan due to monocropping of maize, favourable soil type, environmental conditions and ignorance of management practices. Looking to its importance, present investigations were undertaken to find out the efficacy of botanicals viz., Calotropis procera (latex), Aloe vera (jel) and Euphorbia neriifolia (latex) at 1, 2 and 4 per cent w/v as seed treatment against maize cyst nematode, H. zeae on maize. Results showed that Calotropis procera at 4 % was found most effective followed by Calotropis procera at 2 per cent and Aloe vera at 4 per cent to enhance the plant growth parameters of maize and to reduce the infection of maize cyst nematode, H. zeae.

Keywords: Botanicals, Heterodera zeae, Calotropis procera, Aloe vera and Euphorbia neriifolia
