To determine the host range of Heterodera cajani, 105 species of plants belonging to 58 genera in 21 families were tested. Of these, only 19 (18 in Leguminosae and Sesamum indicum in Pedaliaceae) proved to be hosts. Pigeon pea [Cajanus cajan], hyacinth bean [Dolichos lablab], green gram [Phaseolus radiatus], cowpea [Vigna catjang] and Sesamum indicum were the most favoured hosts and showed extensive damage due to the nematode. 'dagger' .ADDITIONAL ABSTRACT:Investigation of 105 species belonging to 58 genera and 21 families showed that H. cajani caused the greatest damage to Cajanus cajan, Dolichos lablab [= Lablab purpureus], Phaseolus radiatus [= Vigna radiata], cowpeas and Sesamum indicum
