INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT OF ROTYLENCHULUS RENIFORMIS BY GREEN MANURING AND PAECILOMYCES LILACINUS
AbstractPaecilomyces lilacinus and green manuring of Zea mays and Sesbania aculeata were used for the management of Rotylechulus renifomis on pigeonpea. Application of P. lilacinus was found to be the best, followed by amendment of soil by S. aculeata and Z. mays. The P. lilacinus in combination with S. aculeata or with S. aculeata and Z. mays was found to be highly effective for the management of R. reniformis. Use of S. aculeata and Z. mays together as green manuring was found to be less effective.
