Abstract:

Cabbage is one of the most widely cultivated vegetables of the temperate zone. Cabbage is susceptible to many foliar and soil borne diseases, among the soil-borne fungal diseases of cabbage, white head rot disease caused by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum is a potential threat to cabbage production and limits the crop cultivation and it is also associated with root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne incognita). An experiment was conducted to study the interaction of S.sclerotiorum and Mincognita in cabbage. Sequential and concomitant inoculation of the rot-knot nematode (M. incognita) and fungus (S. sclerotiorum) was done in cabbage to observe the disease severity due to the individual effect and interactive effect of the nematode and fungus. It was observed that the white rot disease was found to be more severe (95.41 per cent) with the sequential inoculation of nematodes followed by fungus than with the fungus alone treatment. From the present study, it is well established that the root-knot nematode in cabbage predispose the plants to infect S. sclerotiorum pathogen.


Keywords: Cabbage, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, Meloidogyne incognita, Fungus-nematode complex.
