Intercropping with sesame resulted in decreased penetration of okra roots by Meloidogyne incognita second-stage juveniles (J2) and delayed nematode maturation; it favoured development of M. incognita males and increased yields of okra and chickpea in field tests. The largest effect of intercropping sesame with okra was when they were 15-30 cm apart. In pot tests most J2 penetrated okra roots in sandy loam soil and fewest in clay soil.
