Abstract:

Two Bacillus spp. viz., B. pumilus-K-1 and B. megaterium-IIHR strains were tested under glasshouse as alone and in combination against M. incognita and R. solanacearum causing wilt complex in tomato. Combined application of B. pumilus-K-1 and B. megaterium-IIHR were found effective for the management of nematode bacterial wilt complex with the 50 per cent wilt incidence as compared to untreated control (100%). However, combined application of B. pumilus-K-1 and B. megaterium-IIHR recorded minimum number of galls per root system (112) and number of egg masses per root system (47.33) as compared to untreated control (224.67 and 123.67) respectively, when compared to separate inoculation of B. pumilus-K-1 and B. megaterium-IIHR which recorded higher number of galls (121.67 and 131.67) and egg masses (72.33 and 64.00) respectively. Maximum plant growth parameters viz., plant height, fresh and dry shoot and root weight, root length were observed in case of combined application of B. megaterium-IIHR + B. pumilus-K-1 as compared to untreated control.
