The efficacy of the bacterial parasite, P. penetrans in controlling M. javanica infesting aubergine was tested in one microplot and 2 field tests conducted in Hisar, Haryana, India during 2004-2005. Application of P. penetrans at 1x104 spores/g nursery soil was as effective as the application of carbofuran at 2 kg a.i./ha. At 1x105 spores, the yields were comparable to healthy nursery plants.
