Root Penetration by Meloidogyne incognita Juveniles Infected with Bacillus Penetrans
AbstractBacillus penetrans inhibited penetration by Meloidogyne incognita second-stage juveniles (J2) into tomato roots in the laboratory and greenhouse. Spores from this Florida population of B. penetrans attached to J2 of M. javanica, M. incognita, and M. arenaria. A greater proportion of J2 of M. javanica were infected than were J2 of either M. incognita or M. arenaria, and a greater number of spores attached to M. incognita than to M. arenaria. Key words: bacterial spore parasite, biological control, root-knot nematode.
