Meloidogyne enterolobii Yang and Eisenback, 1983, known colloquially as the guava root-knot nematode or the pacara earpod tree root-knot nematode (Yang and Eisenback, 1983), is an emerging threat due to its global distribution, wide host range, and the ability to reproduce on tomato genotypes carrying Mi resistance genes (Moens et al., 2009; Castagnone-Sereno, 2012). Significant interactions were found between AMF and M. enterolobii in number of leaves, dry biomass of aerial plantlet parts.
