PATHOGENICITY OF MELOIDOGYNE JAVANICA IN MUNG AND CLUSTER BEANS AS AFFECTED BY RHIZOBIUM

M. R. Dalal

Abstract


In mung bean, an inoculum level of 100 Meloidogyne javanica second stage juveniles per kg soil was recorded as the damaging threshold in both Rhizobium-treated as well as untreated plants. In cluster bean, a significant decrease in yield was associated with 10,000 second stage juveniles/kg soil in Rhizobium-treated plants, whereas 1,000 juveniles decreased the yield, fresh shoot weight and length significantly in untreated plants over the check.
