Reaction of Golden Yellow Cassava to Meloidogyne spp. Inoculation


Author: R. M. Gapasin

Abstract

The reaction of Golden Yellow cassava differed at varying inoculum levels of Meloidogyne incognita and M. javanica. Initial populations of approximately 10,000 and 20,000 eggs of M. incognita significantly reduced (P = 0.05) the root and top weights of cassava over the control; however, reduction in tuber weight was not significant between all treatments. Although there was a reduction in root, tuber and top weights at varying inoculum levels of M. javanica no significant differences were found between the treatments.
