In a greenhouse experiment, the efficiency of Pasteuria penetrans against Meloidogyne javanica was evaluated on soyabean FT-Cristalina using 4 inoculum levels of the bacteria: 0, 10x105, 50x105 and 100x105 endospores/kg of soil. Immediately after inoculating the autoclaved soil with P. penetrans, 1000 second-stage juveniles were inoculated into each pot. After 48 h of nematode inoculation, a 3-day old soyabean seedling was transplanted into each pot.
