Experiments were carried out under greenhouse conditions to test the efficacy of P. penetrans in combination with aldicarb, carbofuran, miral phorate and sebufos for the control of M. javanica on tomato Pusa Ruby. Results revealed that the application of P. penetrans in combination with the nematicides significantly improved plant growth characteristics and the increase in growth was more than additive when compared with their individual effects.
