Abstract

Investigations were conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of two nematophagous fungi, Arthrobotrys oligospora and Paecilomyces lilacinus against root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne incognita) infecting okra. A. oligospora alone and in combination with P. lilacinus suppressed root galling and nematode population to a significant level, thereby improving plant growth parameters. P. lilacinus, alone failed to reduce root galling. There were no significant difference in time of applications.
