Abstract

Effects of silicon dioxide nanoparticles (SiO2 NPs) and Rhizobium ciceri was observed alone and in combination on Rhizoctonia solani/ Fusarium solani / Meloidogyne incognita on the growth, photosynthetic pigments (chlorophyll and carotenoid) and proline contents of Cicer arietinum.
Inoculation of M. incognita resulted in a greater reduction in plant growth, photosynthetic pigments and higher increase in proline contents than other test pathogens. Inoculation of R. ciceri or foliar spray of SiO2 NPs (0.10 mg ml-1) with pathogens under study resulted in increased plant growth, photosynthetic pigments and proline contents than without R. ciceri / NPs. Combined application of NPs with R. ciceri resulted in a greater increase in plant growth, photosynthetic pigments and proline contents in plants with pathogens than with NPs or R. ciceri. Plants without R. ciceri had a very poor root nodulation but nodulation was high in plants with R. ciceri. Pathogens under study and NPs had adverse effect on nodulation caused by R. ciceri. Wet rot and black root rot indices were 4 when R. ciceri and F. solani were inoculated respectively. R. ciceri / NPs reduced wet root rot, black root rot indices, galling and population of M. incognita. Disease indices, galling and population of M. incognita were reduced greatly by use of R. ciceri plus SiO2 NPs.
