The combined efficacy of Pasteuria penetrans and leaf extracts of Azadirachta indica, Calotropis procera, Datura stramonium, Ricinus communis and Tagetes minuta was studied on Meloidogyne javanica in pot experiments. The combination of P. penetrans and leaf extracts of A. indica, R. communis and T. minuta improved tomato plant growth over the control while the extracts of C. procera and D. stramonium were phytotoxic when combined with P. penetrans.
