E. cloacae and P. mendocina, were isolated from the rhizosphere of tomato plants growing in a soil heavily infested with both root-knot nematodes and P. penetrans. E. cloacae and P. mendocina stimulated plant growth, inhibited the reproduction of M. incognita, and increased the attachment of the endospores of P. penetrans on the nematodes in vitro. E. cloacae significantly increased the reproduction of P. penetrans in plant roots.
