Biological control: a novel strategy for the control of the plant parasitic nematodes.
Recent advances in understanding of nematodes and nematophagous microorganisms are discussed, with an emphasis on molecular mechanisms that infect nematode with nematophile microorganisms and on Nematode safety from pathogenic attacks. Expand
Effect of Non-tariff Barriers on Maize Production and Marketing by Smallholder Farmers in Tanzania
This study assessed the effects of Non-Tariffs Barriers (NTBs) on maize production and marketing for smallholder farmers in the major maize producing districts (Mbozi and Momba districts) in SongweExpand
Fungal and bacterial nematicides in integrated nematode management strategies
Fungal and bacterial nematicides rank high among other biocontrol agents and can be included in integrated nematode management (INM) programs, and ways that make them complimentary or superior to chemical nematodes management methods were highlighted. Expand
Effects of commonly used chemical fertilizers on development of free-living stages of Haemonchus contortus in experimentally infected pasture
It is shown that when N-P-K fertilizers administered at recommended level, significantly reduced larval translation of H. contortus minimizing pasture infectivity for the free range grazing animals. Expand
Evaluation Efficacy of Fertilizer and Bio- Agents on Field Pea Against Root-Knot
Evaluated NPK fertilizer alone and in combination with bio – agents against Meloidogyne incognita on field pea under glass house condition recorded significant reduction on number of galls, egg masses / plant and final soil nematode population. Expand
Management of Root-Knot Disease in Phaseolus vulgaris Using Potassium Fertilizer and Biocontrol Agents
From the result it was observed that the application of potassium along with biofertilizers in the treatment T-7, improved all the growth as well as biochemical parameters viz, chlorophyll, protein, nitrate reductase, nitrogen and phosphorus contents and reduced the number of galls per root system in comparison to the control and other treatments.

Colonisation of barley roots by endophytic Fusarium equiseti and Pochonia chlamydosporia: effects on plant growth and disease.
Results of this work suggest that both F. equiseti and P. chlamydosporia are long-term root endophytes that confer beneficial effects to the host plant. Expand
A novel role for Trichoderma secondary metabolites in the interactions with plants
Abstract Secondary metabolites play a pivotal role in the antagonistic activities of some biocontrol species of Trichoderma resulting in the suppression of plant pathogens, but their involvement inExpand
Biological control of the root-knot nematode Meloidogyne javanica by Trichoderma harzianum
Results suggested that direct parasitism of eggs through the increase in extracellular chitinase activity, which would be indicator of eggs infection capability, and inducing plant defense mechanisms leading to systemic resistance are two main suppression mechanisms used by T. harzianum BI against nematode.

Mutualistic endophytic fungi and in-planta suppressiveness to plant parasitic nematodes
This review of the development of the concept of using nonpathogenic fungi that colonize the endorhiza for biological control of plant parasitic nematodes hopes that it will be useful to those working or planning to work with mutualistic fungal endophytes for biological enhancement of plants for nematode management. Expand
Systemic acquired resistance.
A model describing the sequence of events leading from initial infection to the induction of defense genes is presented and exciting new data suggest that the mobile signal for SAR might be a lipid molecule. Expand
Trichoderma species — opportunistic, avirulent plant symbionts
Trichoderma spp. are free-living fungi that are common in soil and root ecosystems. Recent discoveries show that they are opportunistic, avirulent plant symbionts, as well as being parasites of otherExpand
Apomictic, polyphagous root-knot nematodes: exceptionally successful and damaging biotrophic root pathogens.
Maintaining general fitness may be the evolutionary priority for most populations of polyphagous RKN, and a wide host range, important in the field but not in the laboratory, may be conserved by apomixis. Expand
Effect of Source of Nitrogen on the Growth of Fiskeby Soya Bean: the Carbon Economy of Whole Plants
It is concluded that 'nodulated' plants grew more slowly than 'nitrate' plants in these experiments for at least two reasons: firstly, the symbiotic association fixed insufficient nitrogen for optimum growth and, secondly, the assimilation of the nitrogen which was fixed in the root nodules was more energy-demanding in terms of assimilate than that of plants which assimilated nitrogen by reducing nitrate in their leaves.
