The effects of Meloidogyne incognita Race 3 and Fusarium oxysporum f. vasinfectum on wilt expression, nematode infestation, plant growth and mineral content were determined on cotton (Gossypium barbadense L.) cultivar Giza 69. The presence of the nematode enhanced the development and severity of wilt. The disease was observed 10 days earlier in the case of infection with both organisms than with the fungus alone. However, the level of wilt incidence, nematode infestation (root-galls and egg masses) and reduction in plant growth were almost more than 2-fold when the two pathogens were present together. Fungal infection induced a significant reduction in K, Mn, Mg, Zn and Cu; but caused a significant increase in N and Ca. Combined infection with both pathogens resulted in a significant reduction in Fe, K, Mg, Zn and Cu and a significant increase in N and Ca. Nematode infection, however, produced a significant increase in N and Zn and a decrease in Cu and Fe.
