Abstract

The present study revealed that standard concentration(s) of culture filtrate of tested rhizospheric fungi has exhibited nematoxic effect by inhibiting the hatching of root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne incognita. The inhibitory effect of culture filtrate decreased with increase in the dilution and maximum hatching was found in S/1000 dilution but significantly less than that hatched in distilled water. Among the saprophytes, the minimum larvae were encountered by Aspergillus Candidus and A. nigerin all the dilutions of culture filtrate while among all the rhizospheric fungi, Verticillium albo-atrum showed maximum inhibitory effect on hatching.
