|Abstract||Okra is an important vegetable crop grown in India. Root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne incognita is widely distributed in India and causes severe damage to okra. Various nematicides which have so far been used to control root-knot nematode are not only expensive and cumbursome to apply, but also hazardous to human beings and the environment. In view to reduce dependence on nematicides, alternative methods which are eco-friendly and feasible to the growers are being sought. Efficacy of oil cakes of neem (Azadirachta indica), mustard (Brassica campestris) and castor (Ricinus communis) was evaluated against root-knot nematode M. incognita. Results showed that soil application with neem and mustard cakes @ 5 q/ha was the best treatments to improve plant growth characters and reduce nematode reproduction on okra. Results also showed that seed dressing with neem cake @ 20 per cent (w/w) found best treatment to improve plant growth characters and reduced nematode reproduction on okra. In another experiment, it was found that seed soaked with aqueous extract of neem cake @ 20 per cent (w/v) for 12 hours reduced the nematode reproduction and improved plant growth characters significantly. In case of combined effect of cakes as soil application + seed dressing studies showed that the neem cake @ 4 q/ha as soil application + 15 percent (w/w) as seed dressing was the best treatment to improve plant growth characters of okra and to reduce nematode reproduction. Likewise combined effect of oil cakes as soil application + seed soaking revealed that neem cake @ 4 q/ha as soil application and 15% (w/v) aqueous extract as seed soaking, reduced the nematode reproduction and increased the plant growth characters significantly.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
