Effect of ginger (Zingiber officinale) was evaluated as nematicide against root-knot disease of brinjal (Solanum melongena). Treatment of soil with ginger as raw and dry bark, powder as well as extract in lower concentration (S/100) inhibited the activity of Meloidogyne javanica in brinjal as evident with lower galling incidence.
