The burrowing nematode, Radopholus similis is known to cause pepper yellows of black pepper. An attempt was made to manage the burrowing nematode population infesting black pepper under field conditions for four years, using the bio-control agents viz. Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), Paecilomyces lilacinus and Pasteuria penetrans. The black pepper vines were trailed on to individual live standards of Glyricidia maculata stems. The plants inoculated with burrowing nematode alone had the… 

Compatibility of Pasteuria penetrans with fungal parasite Paecilomyces lilacinus against root knot nematode on Chilli (Capsicum annuum L.)

The present study investigated the cumulative effect of two biocontrol agents viz.

Microbial control: A potential tool for management of plant parasitic nematodes in black pepper (Piper nigrum L.)

Fungal pathogens and bacterial pathogens have been studied and proved as potential agents for microbial control of plant parasitic nematodes in black pepper and the different microbial agents to manage plant parasitic Nematodes are discussed.

Effect of temperature and sonication on endospore attachment on Meloidogyne incognita (Kofoid and White) and compatibility of endospores of Pasteuria penetrans (Thorne) Sayer & Starr with bioagents

The results showed that endospores of P. penetrans were compatible with other bioagents, and highest endospore attachment on juvenile was recorded at 25°C and 30 min sonication increased the spore attachment.
