Field Evaluation of Pasteuria Isolates for the Control of Root-Knot Nematodes, Meloidogyne javanica on Tomato

Amer Zareen, Nazir Javed and M. Javed Zaki    

Abstract: In a mirco-plot field experiment four isolates of Pasteuria (one from UK and three local isolates viz., PK 1, PK2 and PK3) and a mixed inoculum of all four isolates (blend) were tested against Meloidogyne javanica on tomato to understand the pathogenic variability of different bacterial isolates. Yield of tomato and plant growth as plant height, fresh shoot and root length was improved significantly by blend inoculum of bacterial antagonists compared to control. Nematode development in roots and soil was suppressed by blend applications followed by individual Pasteuria applications i.e. UK > PK 1> PK2 and >PK3 isolates compared to untreated control plots.
