From: On the potential of Bacillus aryabhattai KMT-4 against Meloidogyne javanica

T3 31.6±2.3A 2826.6±92.0A 1141.6±18.0A

  1. T1 and T2 were not inoculated with nematode M. javanica according to the treatment plan, and initially, there were 3000eggs/root system. (T3, RDF + M. javanica; T4, RDF + M. javanica + A. chroococcum Mac27 (108 CFU/ml); T5, RDF + M. javanica + Carbofuran at 1 kg a.i/ha; and T6, RDF + M. javanica + isolate KMT-4 (108 CFU/ml)
  2. ^Data presented are the mean ± SE for three replicates of each treatment. Values with the same letter in the same column are not statistically significant using Duncan’s multiple range test (p< 0.05)
