Abstract: The effects of two irrigation water ( fresh water FW, and treated municipal waste water TMWW ), and three soils ( virgin, FW-irrigated and TMWW-irrigated field soils ) on infectivity and reproduction of Meloidogyne javanica on tomato were tested in two greenhouse experiments. In both experiments, irrigation with TMWW had no influence on number of galls, egg masses and eggs per gram root, but provided significant beneficial effects on host growth. Although TMWW residues in soil ( TMWW-soil ) generally showed similar trends to those of TMWW, results were not consistent in both experiments. Galls, egg masses and eggs were not affected, by the irrigation water x soil interaction. The study indicated that irrigation with TMWW does not affect nematode infectivity and reproduction but provides an increase of host growth. It also suggests that long-term field experiments, preferably on perennials, are needed.
