THE EFFECT OF VERTICILLIUM CHLAMYDOSPORIUM AND OXAMYL ON THE CONTROL OF MELOIDOGYNE JAVANIL3 ON TOMATOES GROWN IN A PLASTIC HOUSE IN CRETE, GREECE

TZORTZAKAKIS, E. A.

Abstract


The effect of the fungus Verticillium chlamydosporium (applied at the rate of 5,000 chlamydospores per g of soil) alone and in combination with oxamyl was assessed against Meloidogyne javanica infecting tomato in a microplot experiment on sandy loam soil in plastic house. The fungus survived in the soil and colonised the roots of tomato but did not reduce root galling, egg production and the remaining egg and juvenile inoculum in the soil after a six month period. A combined treatment with oxamyl did not have any additional effect.
