Abstract:

Root-knot nematodes are microscopic roundworms that feed on plants and cause damage to them. Nematode damage causes a reduction in plant health and growth which results in decline in quality, yield and decreased resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses. Total crop loss also occurs if there is high level of damage caused by the infection. The continuous application of these nematicides not only affects human health but also have an adverse effect on the productivity, soil texture and nutritional content of the vegetable. Due to the various hazards associated with the use of chemically synthesised nematicides, management of the root-knot nematodes via biological methods is a novel technology emerging for sustainable agriculture. In this context, the plant growth-promoting rhizospheric bacteria (PGPR) are the safe, eco-friendly and most effective alternatives for the management of the disease and the pathogens associated with the disease. This review encapsulates various antagonistic strategies opted by PGPRs against root-knot nematodes.
