ABSTRACT

 

A field experiment was conducted for the management of root-knot
of brinjal with nematicides Furadan 5G (@ 12g/plot), neem product
neembicidin (@ 5 ml/L water), and organic soil amendment poultry
refuse (@ 2 kg/plot) either singly or in different combination. It was
observed that application of the treatments neembicidin, poultry refuse
and combination of Furadan 5G combined with poultry refuse reduced
root-knot nematods population, gall index and improved plant growth of
brinjal. Among the treatments poultry refuse combined with Furadan 5G
appeared to be the best. Neembicidin and poultry refuse individually did
not cause satisfactory improvement of plant growth. Significantly higher
yield (1.5 t/ha) was found under the treatment T4 (Furadan and poultry
refuse). But the treatment T4 resulted statistically similar effect to that of
treatment T7 (Furadan 5G, poultry refuse, neembicidin) in reducing gall
and increasing yield of brinjal over control. By correlation and regression
study it has been found that the galling incidence hampered the crop
growth in terms of shoot and root length along with fresh and dry root
weight.
