RESPONSE OF CHILLI CULTIVARS TO MELOIDOGYNE INCOGNITA AND ITS EFFECT ON MORPHOMETRICS OF FEMALE

R. Pandey, P. C. Trivedi

Abstract


Ten cultivars of chilli, Capsicum annuum, were screened far resistance to the root-knot nematode Meloidogyne incognita. The cultivar Pusa Jwala was assessed as resistant, Mandore local-l and 2 as moderately resistant. Morphometrics of females in the tested cultivars showed a linear decrease of body size tram susceptible to resistant cultivars, the smallest females being observed in cv. Pusa Jwala.
