Abstract:
Root knot Nematodes are prevalent pests for many commercial crops. Their impact is felt in the loss of agricultural production and acute shortage of agricultural produce at a regional level. One of the most important vegetable crops in India that is most impacted by this pest is the tomato (Lycopersicum esculentus). The primary nematode species infesting tomato plants is the root knot nematode Meloidogyne incognita. In this study the tomato variety CO-1 developed by Tamil Nadu Agriculture University was used as a host crop. Biological control agent Pseudomonas fluorescens was used for its antagonistic attributes in controlling root knot nematode in tomato plants. In summary, the study concludes that Pseudomonas fluorescens was comparatively more effective in sustained control of nematodes than chemical treatments.
