Abstract

The usefulness of Trichoderma harzianum was tested along with farmyard manure, cow urine, neem oil seed cake, and vermicompost separately and in combination to manage Meloidogyne incognita in Withania somnifera. A treatment combination of nematode inhibitory vermicompost and T. harzianum was found to be most effective against M. incognita.
