Abstract:

Pasteuria penetrans is an important parasite of Meloidogyne incognita. Lifecycle of this parasite is in close association with the nematode. Life table was constructed for healthy and P. penetrans infected population of M. incognita. Results revealed that the life cycle of P. penetrans infected M. incognita was extend by 3 days when compared to healthy population. Survival and life expectancy of the infected population was reduced by 2 days. Stable age distribution revealed that reduction in survival of infected population in all stages. Fecundity rate was reduced to four folds compared to healthy population. This subsequently reduced the population doubling time.
