PATHOGENICITY OF MELOIDOGYNE JAVANICA IN MUNG AND CLUSTER BEANS AS AFFECTED BY RHIZOBIUM

  • M. R. Dalal

Abstract

In mung bean, an inoculum level of 100 Meloidogyne javanica second stage juveniles per kg soil was recorded as the damaging threshold in both Rhizobium-treated as well as untreated plants. In cluster bean, a significant decrease in yield was associated with 10,000 second stage juveniles/kg soil in Rhizobium-treated plants, whereas 1,000 juveniles decreased the yield, fresh shoot weight and length significantly in untreated plants over the check.
