Abstract


Four cultivars of carrot (Daucus carota) namely S- 910, Selection Lalima, DR-333 and New Red were tested for their response to root-knot nematode Meloidogyne incognita and the soft rot bacterium Pectobacterium carotovorum subsp. carotovorum in a pot test. Out of four cultivars tested, DR-333 was found tolerant to M. incognita, whereas S-910 and Selection Lalima were susceptible and New Red was highly susceptible. Cultivars S-910 and New Red were moderately resistant to P. carotovorum subsp. carotovorum. DR-333 was rated tolerant and Selection Lalima as susceptible.
