REPRODUCTION OF POPULATIONS OF MELOIDOGYNE SPECIES ON IN VITRO PRODUCED BANANA PLANTLETS

G. Grammatikaki, E. A. Tzortzakakis

Abstract


Reproduction of two populations of Meloidogyne javanica and one of M. incognita, from Crete, did not differ on Goldfinger (FHIA 01) and Dwarf Cavendish banana plantlets produced in vitro. However, the intensity of root galling differed significantly, being higher on Goldfinger than on Dwarf Cavendish at both the two initial (1000 or 5000 eggs/pot) population densities tested.
