Effect of Inocula Level of Meloidogyne Javanica and Sclerotium rolfsii on the Growth, Yield and Galling Incidence of Groundnut

A.K.M. Kamal Hasan, M.U. Ahmad, M. Rahaman, K.M. Khalequzzaman and M.M. Islam


Mixed inocula of Meloidogyne javanica and Sclerotium rolfsii in five different treatments including control were tested for the growth, yield, galling incidence and development of the nematode in groundnut. Progressively higher galling incidence and higher number of adult females and juvenile populations of M. javanica correspondingly with lower plant growth, nodulation and yield per plant were recorded from lower to higher levels of inocula ranging from 4-10 egg masses of M. javanica with 0.025 - 0.2% w/w of S. rolfsii . Galling incidence was negatively correlated with plant growth, nodulation and yield of groundnut.
