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.
