The current study was assumed to identify the novel activities from different plant species for the control of nematodes. To resolve the egg hatchability and Nematode mortality rates of root knot Nematodes. Root knot Nematodes are most abundant and destructive Nematode around all the tropics and sub tropic regions of the world. These root knot Nematodes isolated from the Musa acuminata were treated with extracts of five plant leaves namely Azadirachta indica (neem), Arthemisia pallens (marikolunthu), Ocimum tenuiflorum (tulasi), Hibiscus rosasinensis (Sembaruthi), Ficus hispida (fig) with methanol were evaluated against root knot Nematodes Meloidogyna incognita under laboratory conditions. The Nematicidal activity of Methnolic and leaves of five plant species extract, decreases the Nematodes viability as the concentration of the extracts increases. Hence they examine the Nematicidal capability of the plant species against Meloidogyna incognita. This article reports a reduction in egg hatching and increased Nematicidal activity.
