EFFECT OF ENDOMYCORRHIZA AND ROOT KNOT NEMATODE ON THE GROWTH AND CHEMICAL COMPOSITION IN BRINJAL
Interaction between four endomycorrhizal fungi (Glomus spp.) and the root knot nematode, Meloidagyne incognito was studied in brinjal (Solamim melongeua). Mycorrhizal inoculation was observed to reduce the root knot nematode infestation. Mycorrhizal plants had higher total soluble protein, phenol, total and reducing sugars. The possible role of some of these chemical constituents in suppressing the development of root knot nematode is discussed.
