Penetration, development and histopathology of root-knot nematodes in tomato NTDR-1
AbstractA programme of tomato breeding for resistance to the rootknot nematode resulted in the variety NTDR-l (Shivashankar et al., 1975). The variety is highly resistant to Meloidogyne incognita (Kofoid et White) Chitw. and M. javanica (Treub) Chitw. This paper reports investigations on some aspects of the interaction between these nematode species and susceptible and resistant tomato varieties.
