Fungus Paecilomyces lilacinus in controlling root-knot nematode and their histological interactions in Capsicum annuum






Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences India Section B (Biological Sciences) 62(2): 275-283

Fungus Paecilomyces lilacinus in controlling root-knot nematode and their histological interactions in Capsicum annuum

In the present study fungus Paecilomyces lilacinus was evaluated for controlling Meloidogyne incognita infecting Capsicum annuum under local conditions. Fungus multiplied on wheat-bran was found most effective in reducing root-knot population by causing death of eggs and reducing subsequent invasion of pathogen. This led to more vigorous plants and better yield minimizing disease syndrome. Histopathological alterations reveal less hypertrophy and hyperplasia, reduced reaction xylem and poor giant cell development in the Fungs (P) + Nematode (N) treated roots as compared to nematode alone treated ones. Possible mechanisms of control due to interaction of fungus-nematode-host are discussed.
