The common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) is an essential crop that has become a source of protein for human nutrition. The yield of common beans in the world is limited by many pests, including plant parasitic nematodes. Meloidogyne genus called Root knot nematodes cause serious damage to the common bean among the plant parasitic nematodes. This genus contains more than a hundred organisms that include the world’s most toxic bacteria. By taking nutrients and water from plants, they cause harm; plant growth and decreases in yield, root galling and wilting are observed. As nematode resistant and susceptible reactions, common bean varieties and genotypes can demonstrate responses. The genetics, molecular interactions and resistance response of common bean beans in this chapter Genotypes were administered against root knot nematodes. There was discussion of common bean and root knot nematode interactions, molecular plant nematode interactions, determination of the genotype tolerance of common bean to root knot nematodes, the effect of root knot nematodes on common bean genotypes, and the effect of genotypes on nematode reproduction. Overall , this chapter is critical for the understanding of root knot nematode resistance responses for common bean varieties and genotypes, and for future studies of plant nematode interactions in breeding.
