A pot experiment was conducted in glass house to evaluate the effect of Cassia tora leaf extract on the growth and yield characteristics of tomato and on the reproduction of root-knot nematodes in fly ash amended soil. Data on plant growth, leaf area, yield characteristics, root-knot and egg-mass indices on tomato grown in different concentration (0, 20, 30 and 50%) of fly ash amended soil with leaf extract of Cassia tora were recorded. The results indicated that the plant growth and yield was enhanced and the nematode population was reduced in the T 2 treatment and the increase in plant growth parameters were recorded up to T 4 treatment while in the T 5 treatment the growth and yield parameters were decreased. Among all the treatments T 4 was found more effective in terms of growth and yield characteristics, while treatment T 5 was effectively reduced the galling and nematodes population.
