The replacement of synthetic nematicides with comparatively more bio-degradable, bio-active plant  extracts is desirable. Studies on the nematicidal potential of different extracts of Hyptis suaveolens on the eggs and second stage juveniles of sugarcane nematode, Heterodera sacchari was conducted. Leaves of H. suaveolens were hydro distilled to extract the essential oil. A second set of the leaves were  extracted separately in dichloromethane (DCM) and in water.
