The presence of northern root knot nematode (Meloidogyne hapla) has considerably increased in the Czech Republic during the last 10 years. The management of this pest is difficult; thus, the aim of this study was to test two alternative pest management techniques on carrots under field conditions. When Indian mustard (Brassica juncea) was ploughed and the treated area was then covered with polyethylene sheets to prolong effect of the treatment, the root gall numbers decreased; whereas a nitrolime application combined with plastic covering had a positive effect on the experimental plants’ fresh weight.
