The screening of twenty Trigonella foenum-graecum varieties against to root-knot nematode Meloidogyne incognita was studied under pot condition. Two varieties, UM-72 and UM-178 showed resistant to M. incognita, one variety Rmt-361 show moderately resistant, two varieties UM-3 and Rmt-365 showed tolerant, seven varieties viz., UM-2, UM-7, UM-19, UM-86, UM-118, UM-135 and UM-354 showed susceptible and eight varieties viz., UM-12, UM-46, UM-85, UM-90, UM-97, UM-147, UM-185 and UM-202 showed highly susceptible to Meloidogyne incognita.
