Abstract:
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) widely cultivated cereal crop and used as staple food world over. It is a good source of multiple nutrients and dietary fiber. However, due to number of biotic and abiotic stress, its productivity is being low. Biotic stress (Insect-pest, pathogens and nematodes) play an important role in reducing production and productivity of wheat. Among plant parasitic nematodes, problem of cereal cyst nematode, H. avenae on wheat has been increase day by day due to favourable agro-ecological conditions. Looking to the importance of cereal cyst nematode, Heterodera avenae, numbers of attempts have been made to studies on various aspects of H. avenae on wheat but still eco-friendly management options for this nematode on wheat is lacking. Therefore, to fill this gap of knowledge, present investigation was conducted to find out eco-friendly management of Hetrodera avenae on wheat. Under the trial, efficacy of dry leaves powder of problematic weeds i.e. Gajar grass (Parthenium hysterophorus), Lantana (Lantana camara) and Amaranthus (Amaranthus viridis) at 1% and 2% as seed treatment (ST) and 1g & 2g as soil application (SA) were tested for the management of cereal cyst nematode, Heterodera avenae on wheat. A standard check (Neem leaves powder at 2% as ST + 2 g/pot as SA) and untreated check was also maintained to interpretate experimental findings. Results exhibited that neem leaves powder at 2 % ST + 2 g/pot as SA was found most effective followed by Amaranthus at 1 % ST + 2 g/pot SA and Amaranthus 2 % ST + 1 g/pot SA to increase the plant growth parameters of wheat and to decrease the infection of cereal cyst nematode, H. avenae.
