Abstract:

Root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.) are important pests of many cultivated plants. Recently the most efficient chemical control products of nematodes, (e.g. methyl bromide); have been restricted due to their toxic characteristics. This study was conducted in the area of tomatoes (Lycopersicun esculentum Mill), which have been grown commercially, in order to isolate Pseudomonas fluorescens bacteria from the soil to be used in biological control of root knot disease which caused by nematode Meloidogyne javanica, this to eliminate the use of agrochemical and their hazard on human health and environment. The results showed that the application of Pseudomonas fluorescens bacteria reduced Meloidogyne javanica galls information and number of juveniles in the soil either as a seed treatment, root dipping or as a soil drench application but seeds treatment showed a little better result than the other application methods.


Keywords: Bio-control, Pseudomonas bacteria, M. javanica.
