In this study plant extract of Azadiracta indica which belongs to the family Meliaceae commonly known as neem and also it is found throughout south of Iran was selected for evaluation of its antifungal and nematocidal activities.
It was concluded from the present study that such phytochemical mixtures offer nematocidal potential in organic vegetable production systems or could be integrated with other management tools as a part of sustainable control strategies for plant-parasitic nematodes.
Nematocidal activity against J2s of Meloidogyne incognita: In experiments investigating the combined effects of the three compounds from F.
In the present study, mixtures of these phytochemicals showed nematocidal effects at concentrations as low as 5 ug mL-1.
Each phytochemical combination appeared to exhibit nematocidal effect towards hatch inhibition and juvenile mortality.
The alcohol + sterol ( nonacosane-10-ol + 23a- homostigmast-5-en-3b-ol) combination was the most active nematocidal combination at the three tested concentrations; hatch inhibition and J2s mortality both approached 100.0% at 50 and 100 u g mL-1.
They are used as active components of many insecticidal and nematocidal products in agriculture (Kolar et al.
