EFFECT OF INTERAXTION OF MELOIDOGYNE INCOGNITA AND FUSARIUM SOLANI ON THE GROWTH OF PAPAYA AND NEMATODE REPRODUCTION

T. A. Khan, S. I. Husain

Abstract


Meloidotyne incognita alone caused greater suppression in plant growth than Fusarium solani, but greatest plant growth suppression was caused by their simultaneous inoculation followed by the sequential inoculation of nematode 15 days prior to nematode. F. solani, whether inoculated simultaneously or sequentially, reduced the rate of reproduction but increased the rate of rootrotting. The symptoms were more pronounced when both were present concomitantly than any one of them separately.
