Abstract

Eggplant is a functional food owing to its anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory, and cardio-protective properties. Root-knot nematodes (RKN) are a threat to the successful production of eggplant. RKN infestation manifests as root damage, stunted development, and structural deformations of the plant. RKN infestation can be managed using a variety of management techniques like soil amendments and chemical treatments. Breeding for nematode tolerance is critical for high yields and stable results. As a result, breeding approaches are the most efficient and cost-effective nematode management methods. Furthermore, with advances in breeding technology and genomics assistance, it is becoming more feasible and straightforward. As a result, we've compiled a list of the most recent breeding developments for Meloidogyne spp. resistance in eggplant. We hope this information will serve as an important resource for the eggplant breeders.
