Effect of root-knot nematodes on growth and development of Celosia argentea L

, : Effect of root-knot nematodes on growth and development of Celosia argentea L. Acta Horticulturae (53): 71-73

Meloidogyne incognita and M. javanica readily attacked Celosia argentea, significantly reducing its early, rapid growth. At harvest, 74 days after emergence, all plants grown in root-knot-infested soil were signficantly smaller and ligher than plants grown in fumigated soil and roots were heavily galled indicating that this cultivar was highly susceptible to the nematodes.
