Abstract: Nematicidal activity of Aloe veraplant at different concentration treatments were evaluated to determine its effect on root-knot nematode. The study was conducted at the Federal College of Forestry Jos, Plateau State of Nigeria between March and May, 2017. Nematicidal activity of Aloe vera was tested on M. incognitaassociated with tomatoes using 80mg/ml, 70mg/ml, 60mg/ml, 50mg/ml and 40mg/ml of the extract. Modified Baermann Funnel Method was used for nematode extractions and 70% ethanol was used for Aloe veraextraction analysis.Seedlings of the tomato plant grown in a sandy-loam soil were inoculated with 400 eggs of root-knot nematodes, Meloidogyne incognita on nursery bed.
