Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a plant growth-promoting rhizobacterium and Memnoniella echinata, a fungal antagonist used separately or in combination in soil amended with neem cake and/or chemical fertilizers significantly suppressed root infecting fungi viz., Macrophomina phaseolina, Fusarium solani and Rhizoctonia solani and the root-knot nematode Meloidogyne javanica in mungbean. Soil amendment increased biocontrol and growth promoting potential of P. aeruginosa and M. echinata.
