Interactive effect of root-knot, reniform and stunt nematodes on tomato

S. Ahmad

Abstract


The effect of individual and concomitant inoculation of Meloidogyne incognita, Rotylenchulus renijormis and Tylenchorhynchus brassicae was studied under pot conditions on tomato. The maximum damage occurred when all three nematodes were inoculated simultaneously. The rate of nematode multiplication was maximum in case of individual inoculation while it decreased when inoculated concomitantly. The maximum root-knot index was observed in a single inoculation and was adversely affected when inoculated in combination with the other nematode species.
