Author(s): Naresh Kumar, Jayant Bhatt, Ratan Lal Sharma, Prahlad and Dilip Kumar

Abstract: The root knot nematode (Meloidogyne incognita) caused reduction in plant height, roots length fresh and dry weights of shoot and roots. Maximum root galls and egg mases were observed with the increasing levels of nematode inoculum. Highest level of nematode inoculum indecated inhibitory and damaging potential on plant growth parameters. One thousand nematode juveniles per 500 g of soil were found to be damaging level of this nematode on Tomato. Significant reduction in plant growth parameters at all stages of plant growth was observed. Maximum numbers of galls were observed at seven days old seedling stage.
