An experiment was conducted to determine the efficacy of Pasteuria penetrans against Meloidogyne incognita infecting aubergine. The treatments comprised 1.25 litres neemark/m2; 0.3 g carbofuran/m2; 1x108 spores P. penetrans/g root powder; and untreated control. Carbofuran had the highest reduction in the number of galls, whereas P. penetrans caused approximately 58% reduction at the time of transplanting.
