Abstract

Root knot nematode -- Fusarium complex in rice under dryland conditions in Brazil.

Abstract

Rice damage due to a Meloidogyne javanica/Fusarium complex in the cerrados of Brazil, often in the 2nd or 3rd year of rice growing or in fields with pasture rotation, is described. Plot trials with 12 dryland cultivars showed that Meloidogyne infection alone had no effect on the aerial parts of the plant.
