Abstract


Experiments were conducted in a screen house to integrate the use of Vesicular Arbuscular Mycorrhiza, Glomus mosseae, with a bio-control fungus Paecilomyces lilacinus, for the management of Meloidogyne incognita on egg plant. Both components of management did not affect each others colonization on the roots resulting into and additive effect of both on the management of M. incognita. The final nematode population was significantly less in the treatment where G. mosseae and P. lilacinus were integrated.
