ABSTRACT

A pot experiment was conducted for the management of root knot nematode
infected tissue cultured banana seedlings with nematicides Rugby 10G (@ 7.5 gm
plant) and Furadan 5G (@ 15 gm / plant), a neem product Neembicidin (@ 5 ml /
L water), a cyst forming bacterial bio control agent Pasteuria penetrans(250 mg
or 10.000 spores / plant), and a organic soil amendment Poultry Refuse (@ 2.5 kg
/ plant either singly or in different combination. Each pot was filled with 8 kg of
soil. Six months after the investigation, it was observed that application of the
treatments Neembicidin, Poultry Refuse and combination of Rugby 10G, Furadan
5G combined with Poultry Refuse reduced root knot nematodes population gall
index and improved plant growth of banana. 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.
