Combined Effect of Biofertilizers and Fertilizer in the Management of Meloidogyne incognita and Also on the Growth of Red Kidney Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris)

Rushda Sharf, Hisamuddin, Abbasi and Ambreen Akhtar    

Abstract: The experiment was conducted to determine the combined effects of two biofertilizers (Trichoderma viride and Pochonia chlamydosporia) and the nitrogenous fertilizer (urea) in the management of the root-knot disease caused by the nematode (Meloidogyne incognita) and on the growth and the biochemical parameters of red kidney bean (Phaseolus vulgaris). From the results it was evident that combined application of the biofertilizers and the nitrogenous fertilizer in the treatment T-8 improved all the growth parameters as well as biochemical parameters viz., chlorophyll, protein, nitrate reductase, nitrogen and phosphorus contents in comparision to control as well as in comparision to other treatments. The number of egg masses and the number of galls per root system were significantly reduced in all the treatments, however, maximum reduction was observed in the treatment T-8.
