Uptake and Trans- location of Calcium and Magnesium in Tomato plants as influenced by infection with Root-knot Nematode Meloidogyne incognita and Tobacco Mosaic Virus. As early as 1903, several workers had described changes in the percentage of mineral elements in plants infected with nematodes (Wilfarth & Wimmer 1903, Oteifa 1952, Sher 1957, Hunter 1958, Maung 1959, Owens & Helen, 1960). Tobacco mosaic virus (Mathur et al. 1966) and Meloidogyne incognita were found together in tomato plants in the fields of the Indian Agricultural Research Insti- tute, New Delhi. Since no work has been done on mineral absorption and trans- location in plants infected with nematode and virus when associated together, this prompted the authors to assess the amounts of calcium (Ca) and magnesium (Mg) in tomato plants to explore the possibility that the uptake of these elements in- fluences the interaction of these pathogens on the host. Materials and methods: The experiments were conducted in an insect-proof glasshouse. Tomato (Lycopenicon e.rculentunz Mill. cv. Pusa Ruby) seedlings were raised in sterilized coarse river sand. These seedlings of uniform size and growth, raised under uniform conditions, were
