Steinernema asiaticum, Steinernema glaseri, Heterorhabditis indica and Heterorhabditis bacteriophora were investigated for invasion and development of root knot nematodes Meloidogyne incognita in tomato roots. Harvesting of treatments was done at various time intervals over a period of 28 days. Reduction of J2s was recorded in EPN treatments along with reduced number of females in EPN treated roots S. glaseri and S. asiaticum were the most successful in suppressing the invasion and development of root knot nematodes in tomato while H. indica and H. bacteriophora also suppressed the root knot nematode development. Maximum invasion and development was observed in control.
