Selection of the Most Suitable Host for the Mass Production of Pasteuria penetrans an Obligate Parasite of Root-knot Nematode Meloidogyne javanica

Nazir Javed, H.U. Khan and Riaz Ahmad    

Abstract: Selection of the most suitable host for the mass production of P. penetrans revealed that brinjal was the most suitable host followed by mungbean, mash and cowpea. It was due to more invasions sites present in the brinjal roots, which provided more penetration of nematodes in the roots. The relationship of quantity of roots and amount of spores revealed that within the host more amount of roots produced more endospores but amongst the hosts it did not happen.
