The strategy employed in the management of Meloidogyne incognita on tomato is to use some nematicides. This has however risen environmental and health concerns. In order to maintain environmental and human health protection coupled with the necessity to consume healthy foods, there is essential for an alternative nematode control method which does not leave residuals nor pollute environment in anyway. The influence of agricultural wastes (corncobs, rice husks and sorghum husk) and a synthetic nematicide carbofuran was evaluated on Meloidogyne incognita infected tomato plants. The agricultural wastes significantly (p=0.05) reduced nematode population, especially sorghum husk was the most effective to enhance tomato yield to reduced Meloidogyne incognita population. The use of agricultural wastes with soil admixing substantially reduces the population of Meloidogyne incognita, thus discouraging the application of synthetic nematicides.
