New indigenous bacterial isolates Lysobacter and Pseudomonas as an important source of metabolites useful for biotechnology, plant growth stimulation and disease control: from isolates to inoculants (MESTD - 46007)

Root-knot nematodes represent a polyphagous group of obligatory parasites characterized by widespread distribution and great adaptability. On the top 10 list of the most harmful species, they are at the first place. They produce gall formation in roots, while the above-ground symptoms are sometimes not visible. Meloidogine spp. cause an estimated annual loss of 157 billion dollars globally. Species identification was previously done only on the basis of morphological and morphometric characters. Today, there are molecular and biochemical methods to identify and describe new species of root-knot nematodes. Current investigations indicate the presence of M. incognita and M. hapla in Serbia but the problem is insufficient knowledge of this group of harmful organisms.
