Abstract:
Reniform nematode, Rotylenchulus reniformis is considered to be the most important nematode of pulse crops including chickpea. Farmers experience chronic losses by reniform nematode because of its wide distribution and high frequency in all agro-climatic zones of India. Looking to it’s economic importance, several pesticides have been tried for the management of nematode, but due to environmental pollution, health hazards, high cost and lack of easy availability, their adoption at farmer’s level has been limited. Therefore, attempts were made to determine alternative methods which may be effective, economical and eco-friendly for the management of reniform nematode, R. reniformis on chickpea. Experimental findings exhibited that the seed treatment with P. lilacinum at 20g/kg seed was found best followed by P. fluorescens at 20g/kg seed and T. harzianum at 20g/kg seed in improving plant growth of chickpea and reduced reproduction of reniform nematode, R. reniformis.
