INTERACTION BETWEEN HETERODERA CAJANI AND RHIZOBIUM ON MUNG BEAN AND CLUSTER BEAN

M. R. Dalal, D. S. Bhatti

Abstract


The interaction between Heterodera cajani and Rhizobium in different combinations revealed that prior addition of Rhizobium (by two weeks) enhanced nodulation but reduced nematode reproduction on mung bean. With cluster bean, addition of Rhizobium prior to or simultaneously with the nematode reduced plant growth although nodulation was enhanced when Rhizobium was added two weeks before nematode inoculation. Prior addition of Rhizobium also enhanced reproduction of the nematode on cluster bean.
