Abstract: The interaction between root knot nematode Meloidogyne incognita and the fungus Fusarium oxysporum was studied on Black gram cultivar TU 98-14.The results indicated that plant growth was adversely affected in all the cases where the plant was inoculated with M. inocgnita and F. oxysporum when compared with uninoculated control. The data revealed that significantly reduced (13.40) plant height was recorded in the treatment where nematode inoculated first and fungus seven days after followed by the inoculation by fungus first and nematode seven days after. Simultaneous inoculation by both the organisms recorded 16.06 cm plant height which was at par with nematode inoculation only (15.36) cm). Fungus inoculated plants attained 16.56 cm plant height against 18.62 cm plant height in control. Minimum (11.52 cm) length of root was noticed in the treatment were nematode preceded fungus followed by the treatment where fungus inoculated first and nematode seven days after (12.98 cm). Reduced root length was also noted in nematode (14.28 cm) and fungal inoculation (13.06 cm) which were at par with each other. Significant increase in root length was also recorded in simultaneous inoculation by both the organisms. Uninoculated control recorded maximum (19.02 cm) root length.
