Abstract:

The study on “Screening of different rootstocks of pomegranate (Punica granatum L.)” against root knot nematode” was undertaken with a view to screen the various rootstocks under sick soil (pot culture) with view to identify root knot nematode tolerant/resistant pomegranate rootstocks. Eleven rootstocks genotypes were screened and among these rootstocks four viz., Daru, Jodhpur Red, Jallore Seedless and Bedana Suri were found to be moderately resistant to root-knot nematodes Meloidogyne incognita. The lowest mortality (13.33 %) was recorded in two rootstocks viz., Bedana Suri and Yercaud The highest mortality (40.00 % each) was recorded in Alandi. The mortality ranged from 13.33-40.00 %.The average range of nematode galls was 25.33-36.00. The minimum nematode galls (25.33) were recorded in Daru. However, the maximum nematode galls (36.00) were recorded in the rootstock Yercaud. The final minimum (3286.67) nematode count/pot was recorded in the rootstock Daru (R11). However, the maximum (5860.00) nematode count/pot was recorded in the rootstock Kandhari (R4). The final root-knot nematode count/pot ranged from 3286.67- 5860.00 at the end of the experiment (180 days after sowing). Thus, it is concluded that the rootstocks viz., Daru, Jodhpur Red, Jallore Seedless and Bedana Suri were found to be moderately resistant to root-knot nematode.
