ABSTRACT

The study involves evaluation of two nematicides, namely Turtob-F (a new nematicide) and carbofuran on 3 nematode populations and two bacteria associated with the rhizosphere of brinjal. The effect of the nematicides was observed on the population size of the selected nematodes and bacteria as well as the yield of brinjal crop. All three nematode populations were markedly reduced by the applied nematicides. The bacterial populations (Pseudomonas and Klebsiella) however, remained uninfluenced by the nematicides. The yield of brinjal was found to be significantly elevated (p<0.05).
