Fatima S. Mehdi , Imran Ali siddiqui , Shazia Erum and Rajab Ali

Abstract:
Potential of Avicennia marina (mangrove) with Paecilomyces lilacinus for the control of root infecting fungi viz., Macrophomina phaseolina, Fusarium solani, Rhizoctonia solani and Meloidogyne javanica root knot nematode was evaluated invitro and under green house conditions. Soil amendment with A. marina alone or in combination with P. lilacinus significantly controlled root rot-root knot diseases in tomato with enhancement in plant growth. Organic amendment enhanced biocontrol efficacy of P. lilacinus in the control of root pathogens.
