Abstract


In a greenhouse experiment, eight cowpea (Vigna unguiculata) cultivars were grown in pots of sterilized soil and inoculated with Meloidogyne javanica juveniles. On the basis of root galling, cv IT82E-77 was considered to be the most resistant. CVs IT82D-714, IT82E-60, Ife Brown and K-59 were the most susceptible. CVs IT82D-1228-15, IT82D-1228-16 and FARV-13 were moderately resistant.
