Shade house studies were undertaken at KNUST, Kumasi, Ghana to assess the potential of 2 isolates of Pasteuria penetrans from Malawi and Trinidad, singly and in a mixture, for the control of a mixed population of root-knot nematodes, Meloidogyne species. A local cultivar of tomato used as a test crop was inoculated (at transplanting) with second stage Meloidogyne larvae pre-encumbered with the bacteria.
