Original Article


Comparative pathogenicity of reniform nematode on root-knot resistant ABT 10 and susceptible bidi tobacco A119 revealed that ABT 10 was found significantly superior to A119 with respect to plant growth characters and as good as A119 with respect to multiplication of reniform nematode. Initial inoculum of 1,000 J4 of the nematode found damaging to both ABT 10 and A119 varieties of bidi tobacco.
