A pot culture experiment was carried out in a net house condition of Department of Nematology, College of Agriculture, O.U.A.T, Bhubaneswar during 2017-2018 to assess the nematode control potential of Pseudomonas fluorescens and Bacillus subtilis on the growth of the brinjal plant var. Mukta Began and reduction of root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne incognita. The experiment was designed in complete randomised block design comprising of eight treatments with three replications of each treatment. Among all the treatments, it was revealed that T6 (Soil application of Bacillus subtilis @3mg/kg) observed maximum increase in growth parameters like increase in plant height by (40.56%), fresh shoot weight (80.25%), fresh root weight (97.22%), dry shoot weight (97.11%), dry root weight (94.44%), root length (98.17%), root volume (65.23%) with decrease of number of nematode population in soil and root respectively, (70.64%) and (44.73%) over untreated check T8.
