Abstract:

Field experiment on efficacy of biocontrol agents for the management of rice root knot nematode Meloidogyen graminicola in paddy nursery and field were conducted during the samba season (2014-15) with rice variety TRY 3. The results revealed that seed treatment (10g/kg of seeds) along with soil application (@2.5kg/ha) of Pseudomonas fluorescens were found to inhibit the nematode population and increase the plant biomass followed by individual application compared to untreated control. The biocontrol agent P. fluorescens as seed treatment and nursery soil application recorded lowest incidence of rice root knot nematode and in improving the seedling growth.
