ABSTRACT
Effect of Azolla (Azolla pinnata) in combination with mustard oil cake (MOC) was studied on the galling in roots and growth of eggplants (Solanum melongena) inoculated with Meloidogyne javanica. Fresh weight and length of both shoot and root were vigorous when dry Azolla (5g) or fresh Azolla extract (10ml) in mixing with the half standard dose (1.25g) of MOC was applied. Similarly, the galling incidence was lower in the same treatment that was identified for the vigorous growth of the plant. A. pinnata was found as a very effective agent for the normal growth of root and shoot with half-standard dose of MOC. Both of these agents in together created resistance to the plants and its toxic materials might suppress the nematode activity, which ultimately confirm the lower presence of galling by M. javanica.
