.Type Host: Lime (Citrus aurantifolia)
Neem seedlings (Azadirachta indica) parasitized by M. indica
had yellowing leaves and stunted root growth. Roots were heavily galled, mostly
along the tap root, and there were fewlateral branches.
Meloidogyne. indica isolated from neem also infected citrus
seedlings with galls and egg masses evident 35 days after inoculation (Phani
et al., 2018).
