Race Composition of Meloidogyne Species Infecting Pseuderanthemum atropurpureum in Aligarh District of Western Uttar Pradesh

Mucksood Ahmad Ganaie and Tabreiz Ahmad Khan    

Abstract: Objective: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the different races infecting P. atropurpureum so that the management practices can be followed as per the races of the nematodes. Methodology: A survey was conducted in 15 different places of Aligarh district of Western Uttar Pradesh to access the different races of Meloidogyne spp., infecting an ornamental pant Pseuderanthemum atropurpureum. Out of 70 isolates of Meloidogyne spp., collected from the roots of P. atropurpureum growing in different localities of Aligarh district, 14 isolates were designated as race-1, 36 isolates as race-3 and 5 isolates as race-4 of M. incognita. The remaining 15 isolates showed the presence of M. arenaria race-1 in 3 isolates and M. arenaria race-2 in 12 isolates. Results: The results of the present study showed that P. atropurpureum was more susceptible host to M. incognita as compared to M. arenaria. To the best of my knowledge, since no records are available in the literature regarding the infection of root-knot nematodes viz., M. incognita and M. arenaria and their race identification in P. atropurpureum. Conclusion: It is worthy to note that this plant may be considered as new host to the different races of M. incognita and M. arenaria.
