THE EFFICACY OF NEMATODE RESISTANT TOMATO CULTIVARS TO MELOIDOGYNE JAVANICA UNDER GREENHOUSE CONDITIONS

J. Philis

Abstract


Studies conducted in Cyprus under greenhouse conditions during 1987-1989 using root-knot nematode resistant cultivars have shown that Carmelo and Barelli cvs were highly resistant to Meloidogyne javanica yielding, as an average of three years, 47.9 and 21.2 percent significantly more than the susceptible cultivar Dombito, respectively. Nematode susceptibility of cv. Dombito, in the last year of experimentation, was high reaching 60 galls and 24,500 eggs per gram of root.
