Abstract

In view of the recent increased interest in developing plant origin nematicides as a surrogate to chemical nematicides, this research was carried out to determine the effectiveness of Aqueous extract of Leaves of Sodom apple (Calotropis procure F. Aiton) in the control of root knot nematode infection on Okra Pods (Abelmoschus esculentus L. Moench). Aqueous extracts of Leaves of the C. procera F. Aiton were applied at 0%, 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% concentrations. The five treatments were replicated six times and were applied randomly to the infected Okra Plants with pods. The effects of the treatment on the yield of Okra were observed. The result showed that the different treatments resulted in improved yield of the treated plant.
