The interaction between the VA mycorrhizal fungus,Glomus fasciculatus and the root-knot nematodes,Meloidogyne incognita andM. javanica, and their effects on the growth and phosphorus nutrition of tomato was studied in a red sandy loam soil of pH 6.0. Inoculation of tomato roots with root-knot nematodes enhanced infection and spore production byG. fasciculatus. Inoculation of tomato plants withG. fasciculatus significantly reduced the number and size of the root-knot galls produced byM. incognita andM. javanica. Inoculation withG. fasciculatus although improved plant growth and its total phosphorus content compared to the uninoculated plants, the difference were not statistically significant.
