Plant growth promoting Rhizobacteria: An overview
Of the microorganisms that parasitize on nematodes and reduce nematode populations by antagonistic behaviour, bacteria hold an important position where some of them have shown great potential as biocontrol agents. Expand
Interaction between Meloidogyne incognita and Pochonia chlamydosporia and their effects on the growth of Phaseolus vulgaris
Application of fungus prior to nematode inoculation improved the plant growth and reduced the number of galls and the numberof egg masses per root system. Expand
Study of efficacy of leaf extracts of some plants on germination andsporulation of fungi Paecilomyces lilacinus
An experiment was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of leaf extract of five medicinal weed plant on growth and sporulation of nematophagous fungus Paecilomyces lilacinus, and the maximum mycelial growth was observed in Amaranthus spinosus, and minimum in Lantana camara. Expand
Histopathology of roots of Glycine max (L.) Merrill induced by root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne incognita)
The distinctive feature of the study is reporting the occurrence of abnormal xylem, abnormal phloem and abnormal parenchyma in Glycine max, which induced giant cells in the zone of vascular strands. Expand
Effect of different inoculum levels of Meloidogyne incognita on growth and yield of Lycopersicon esculentum, and internal structure of infected root
Lycopersicon esculentum (tomato) plants, grown in sterilised clay pots, were inoculated with 50, 500, 1000, and 3000 second-stage juveniles (J2) of the root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne incognita) andExpand
Impact of Fly ash on Vegetative Growth and Photosynthetic Pigment Concentrations of Solanum nigrum L.
Fly ash consists of minute gas-like particles and its deposition on leaves inhibits the normal transpiration and photosynthesis activities of plants. The effect of fly ash at different concentrationsExpand
Antagonistic effect of Glomus mosseae on the pathogenicity of root-knot nematode infected Solanum nigrum
The data revealed that plant length, plant weight, number of flowers,Number of fruits, and amount of chlorophyll a and b decreased significantly in T1, when compared with control, while in T2, all the parameters were found to be significantly higher than T1 which were at par with control. Expand
When bacterium was applied simultaneously with metal, there was a prominent but non significant improvement in growth parameters at the lower level of metal application, which may be attributed resistant nature of Pseudomonas fluorescence towards the metal. Expand
Impact of Fly Ash Amended Soil on Growth, Quality and Productivity of Eclipta alba (L.)
High and significant enhancement was observed, when the plants were grown in the soil amended with 35% fly ash and parameters considered like plant length, fresh and dry weights, leaf area, photosynthetic pigments, protein content and productivity of Eclipta alba were found to increase. Expand
