INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT OF ROOT-KNOT NEMATODE (MELOIDOGYNE INCOGNITA) INFECTING TOMATO (LYCOPERSICON ESCULENTUM MILL)H.R. Gurjar, M.K. Sharma, S. Bhargava and A.S. Srivastva
A field experiment was conducted at farmers field during 2014 and 2015 for the management of root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne incognita) infecting tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill). Experiment conducted with the combination of deep summer ploughed nursery, soil solarized nursery and non-solarized nursery with MCW-2, UPI-210 novel nematicides and doses 2 and 4g / m2 nursery area. The best combination of experiment was recorded, soil solarization x 4g / m2 dose of MCW-2 chemical was found most superior reduce RKI at transplant (1.22, 1.38 and 1.30) RKI at harvest (1.30, 1.70 and 1.50), lowest final nematode population (5289, 5057 and 5173) and increased seedling weight (169.67, 180.83 and 175.25 g / 10 seedlings) and yield of tomato were recorded (312.50, 304.17 and 308.33 q / ha).
