Coccinea cordifolia, a wildly growing cucurbit plant having medicinal properties, was tested on plant growth, biochemical and pathological characteristics in fly ash amended soil infested with the root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne incognita. The length, fresh weight and dry weight of the plants in comparison to control were significantly decreased in all the treatments except in treatment that received 30% fly ash. The number of flowers, fruits per plant, and the average leaf area exhibited the same pattern. Amount of chlorophyll and protein content of plants decreased significantly in all the treatments of 0 to 50% fly ash levels except 30% fly ash level. Number of gall and number of egg masses per plant decreased in 10 to 50% fly ash levels, when compared with 0% fly ash level amended plants.


Key words

Coccinea cordifolia, fly ash, Meloidogyne incognita.
