EFFECT OF PRE-, POST- AND SIMULTANEOUS INOCULATIONS OF RHIZOBIUM, ROTYLENCHULUS RENIFORMIS AND MELOIDOGYNE INCOGNITA ON LENTIL

M. Fazal, Z. A. Siddiqui, M. Imran

Abstract


Lentil seedlings (Lens culinaris Medic.) suffered greater damage from Meloidogyne incognita and Rotylenchulus reniformis individually or concomitantly, when plants were not infected with Rhizobium. Also, nematode multiplication was greater in the absence of Rhizobium. Sequential nematode inoculations were time dependent i.e. prior establishment of one nematode species was mutually antagonistic to the multiplication of the other subsequently inoculated species.
