Parasitic nematode problems in Malan

Rice cultivars were studied against root-knot nematode and white tip nematode infection. Significantly lowest gall number of root knot nematode was recorded in genotype Kunjan-4 and highest gall number was recorded in genotype HPR-1156. Hybrid HRI-152 and HPR-2153 recorded significantly lowest and highest number of white-tip nematodes in grains, respectively. Beside this, root-knot nematode galls recorded in the wheat crops varied from 8 to 162 galls / 5 g root.
