One hundred infective stages of root-knot and reniform nematodes as initial inoculum level could cause significant reduction in growth characters. Reniform nematode appeared to be more harmful than root-knot by producing significantly higher growth reduction at lower level. Gall formation due to root-knot nematode was adversely affected by their combined inoculation.


Key words
