root-knot nematode attacking tomato, field condition, soil amendments


The present results found that organic waste materials were effective against the root-knot nematode that attacks tomatoes under field conditions and significantly reduced root gall indices, nematodes and egg masses compared to the control. Organic soil amendments stimulate the activities of microorganisms that are antagonistic to root-knot nematodes.
