The Potential of Five Eco-Biorational Products on the Reproduction of Root-Knot Nematode and Plant Growth

Mohamed S. Khalil


This work aimed to select potentially useful eco-biorational product that could be used to reduce the reproduction of root-knot nematode. The experiment was carried out in pots under net house. The results revealed that the bio-product Dipel® (Bacillus thuringiensis ) proved to be the most effective treatment that reduced the root galls and egg masses by 71.60 and 77.78%, respectively. Also, Dipel® (B. thuringiensis) & Bio-nematon® (Paecilomyces lilacinus) showed their superiority between all treatments on the shoot, root length and root weight.
