The efficacy of neem part / products, alone and in combination with two nematicides, carbofuran and phorate against root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne incognita on tomato were tested in the field. Individually all the treatments showed maximum plant growth and minimum root-galls and egg-masses on roots. The highest significant improvement in plant growth characters and maximum reduction in galls and egg-masses on roots were recorded in plots treated with oil-cake + carbofuran followed by oil-cake + phorate. The chopped neem leaves alone were found least effective. The maximum reduction in soil population of the nematode was observed in plots treated with oil-cake + carbofuran.
