The host suitability of eight tomato, five eggplant and six potato cultivars to the root-knot nematode species Meloidogyne arenariaM. javanica and M. incognitawas determined in the greenhouse. The results showed that these nematode species infected and reproduced successfully on all the tested solanaceous crop cultivars. The tomato cultivars Asala, Castle Rock, Edkawy, Giza 80, Super Crystal, Super Marmande and Super Strain B were susceptable or highly susceptable to the tested nematode species, while the tomato cultivar N 23 was moderately suseptibale. The eggplant cultivars Balady, Black Beauty, Black Long, Round Black and White Long were highly susceptible to the tested root-knot nematodes. The potato cultivars Diamant and Lady Rosetta were highly susceptible while cvs. Desiree, Famosa, Spunta and King Edward were susceptible to the tested nematode species.

Keywords: Egypt, host sutaility, Meloidogyne spp., Tomato, Eggplant, Potato.
