A. Gautam, Z. A. Siddiqui, I. Mahmood

Abstract


Paecilomyces lilacinus, Bacillus subtilis and green manuring with Eicchornia crassipes were used alone and in combination for the management of Meloidogyne incognita on tomato. Treatment of P. lilacinus to M. incognita inoculated plants caused greater plant growth than B. subtilis or E. crassipes. Use of B. subtilis plus P. lilacinus plus E. crassipes. The use of both biocontrol agents along with a green manure of E. crassipes resulted in greatest plant growth of M. incognita inoculated plants. Treatment of B. subtilis plus E. crassipes resulted in less growth of M. incognita inoculated plants compared to any other combined treatment of management agents.
