Effect of different concentrations of Eriobotrya japonica extract on control of infection by Meloidogyne incognita and Cephalobus litoralis

This study discusses and developed methods for obtaining plant extracts/pure compounds and its usages as a nematicidal agent. Freshly hatched second-stage juveniles of two nematode species, Meloidogyne incognita and Cephalobus litoralis were used. A bioassay guided isolation of the extract, fractions and pure compounds were done for their nematicidal activity at different concentrations in comparison with Azadirachta...
