The effect of Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR) on growth parameters of mash bean infected with Meloidogyne incognita was studied. Three PGPR-H4, PGPR-K315, PGPR-Ax strains were evaluated with respect to growth parameters and against Meloidogyne incognita, among those PGPR-K315 proved to be the best followed by PGPR-H4 and PGPR-Ax. The PGPR strains not only increased the growth parameters of mashbean plants but also acted as a biological control agent by reducing the number of galls, egg masses on roots and number of juveniles in soil as compared to untreated control.
