AbstractA Nigerian tobacco (NTC 5) was inoculated with 600 larvae of Meloidogyne incognita and 600 larvae of Pratylenchus brachyurus singly and in combination. Plants inoculated with P. brachyurus alone were more severely affected both in foliar growth and in root development. M. incognita was the dominant species when both nematodes were inoculated together on the same plants.
