Abstraction :-

Root knot nematode Meloidogyne incognita is considered as one of the limiting factor for reducing the production and productivity of brinjal. Cultivation of resistant germplasm/variety is the most economical as well as ecological viable means for combating this nematode infestation. Among 200 germplasm/variety of brinjal screened against M. incognita for resistant reaction, eleven varieties viz. BB-45C, BB-49, Athagarh local, Gachha baigana, Ghatikia white, Kantimundi, Kampagarh local, Kantabaigan, KS-224,LB-30 and LB-44 were resistant to M .incognita. 64 germplasm /variety exhibited moderately resistant, 99 germplasm /variety exhibited susceptible and 26 germplasm/ variety exhibited highly susceptible reaction to the test nematode species. None of the screened variety was shown highly resistant reaction. KEY WORDS: Brinjal, Root knot nematode, Resistance
