Abstract

Al-Hammouri, A., Lindemann, W., Sanogo, S., Thomas, S. and Steiner, R. 2013. Short Communication: Interaction between Rhizoctonia solani and Meloidogyne incognita on chile pepper in soil infested simultaneously with both plant pathogens. Can. J. Plant Sci. 93: 67-69. The interaction of Rhizoctonia solani and Meloidogyne incognita was examined on chile. The frequency of recovery of Rhizoctonia, Meloidogyne egg counts, the Meloidogyne reproduction factor, and plant growth parameters were measured at 45, 60, and 75 d after soil infestation. The reproduction rate of M. incognita was not affected by the presence of R. solani. Similarly, R. solani infection was not affected by the presence of M. incognita. Neither plant biomass nor plant physiological measurements were affected by co-infectation with R. solani and M. incognita. These results indicate that little or no synergistic effect between R. solani and M. incognita occurred as a result of co-infection, and that no added adverse impact on chile occurred.
