INTERACTION OF MELOIDOGYNE INCOGNITA AND FUSARIUM OXYSPORUM F. SP. CUBENSE ON BANANA
Experiments were conducted to study the interaction between Meloidogyne incognita and Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense on banana cv. Rasthali. Synergistic interaction occurred between the pathogens both in concomitant and sequential inoculations, resulting in significant reduction in plant growth. The panama wilt disease in terms of corm rot was significantly higher when nematode followed fungus and in concomitant inoculations of the pathogens.
