A greenhouse experiment was conducted during the summer seasons 2019 and 2020 to evaluate the effect of sunflower grains priming in different concentrations of salicylic, ascorbic acids, hydrogen peroxide, thiamine, nitric oxide and Oxamyl growth parameters of sunflower plants under the stress of nematode infection. The best effect was reach by the seed soaking of Nitric oxide at 100 ppm(stem height 66.4 cm; root length 81.96 cm;shoot fresh weight 414.2 g;root fresh weight 201.86 g; shoot dry

Nematicide Oxamyl (stem height 34.3 cm; root length 32.94 cm;shoot fresh weight 156.0 g; root fresh weight 72.3 g; shoot dry weight 37.94 g) followed by control non soaked the best effect was reached over both season by the seed soaking of hydrogen peroxide at 100 ppm (N:
