Eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) also known as brinjal is a vital cheap summer vegetable. It has medicinal properties.Eggplant is severely damaged by root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne incognita.The present investigation was carried out to access the effectiveness of Paecilomyces lilacinus and the Radiant in various combinations on the reproduction of M. incognita on eggplant.The interaction of P. lilacinus and Radiant was determined individually, concomitantly, and sequentially on reproduction of M. incognita on eggplant under greenhouse. The reproduction of root- knot nematode, M. incognita was significantly reduced in the concomitant treatment consisting of both bioagent and bioprouct followed by sequential and individual treatment of Radiant.Our findings suggest that the bioproducts and the bioagents have the ability to regulate nematode population.
Nematodes are microscopic, eel-like roundworms that can infect humans, animals, and plants and cause serious damage and yield losses in a wide range of crops worldwide. This book includes thirteen chapters that address such topics as diagnosing nematode infections in crops (fruits and horticultural crops), management and biological control of plant-parasitic nematodes, biological indicators of nematodes, and entomopathogenic and marine nematodes. This comprehensive volume is a useful resource for students, teachers, researchers, field workers, and all those interested in and working with nematodes.
