  Objective: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the different races infecting P. atropurpureum so that the management practices can be followed as per the races of the nematodes. Methodology: A survey was conducted in 15 different places of Aligarh district of Western Uttar Pradesh to access the different races of Meloidogyne spp., infecting an ornamental pant Pseuderanthemum atropurpureum. Out of 70 isolates of Meloidogyne spp., collected from the roots of P. atropurpureum growing in different localities of Aligarh district, 14 isolates were designated as race-1, 36 isolates as race-3 and 5 isolates as race-4 of M. incognita. The remaining 15 isolates showed the presence of M. arenaria race-1 in 3 isolates and M. arenaria race-2 in 12 isolates. Results: The results of the present study showed that P. atropurpureum was more susceptible host to M. incognita as compared to M. arenaria. To the best of my knowledge, since no records are available in the literature regarding the infection of root-knot nematodes viz., M. incognita and M. arenaria and their race identification in P. atropurpureum. Conclusion: It is worthy to note that this plant may be considered as new host to the different races of M. incognita and M. arenaria.

  A disease complex involving Meloidogyne incognita and Fusarium solani was studied on tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum, Mill.) under glasshouse conditions. Pot experiments were conducted to determine the pathogenesis of both the pathogens individually, simultaneously and sequentially. Isolates of M. incognita and F. solani singly caused a significant reduction in plant height, fresh weight, dry weight, number of fruits and fruit weight over the un-inoculated one but the reduction was more by M. incognita as compared to F. solani. A significant reduction in different plant growth parameters was observed on simultaneous and sequential inoculation of M. incognita and F. solani. However, the reduction was more prominent on simultaneous inoculation of both the pathogens. Among the sequential inoculations more damages were assessed during inoculation of M. incognita followed by F. solani (N+f10). Nematode multiplication, number of galls and number of females were adversely affected on simultaneous and sequential inoculation of both the pathogens in all the treatments. In the present study it was concluded that both the pathogens viz M. incognita and F. solani are virulent against the tomato c.v pusa ruby and therefore measures to prevent the spread of disease become important.
