Yesterday I harvested  Methi Soppu.  Today when I was removing the left over roots of Methi, I found that their was some sort of white infection in the roots of Methi  .    On earlier occasion I found similar infection on one of my Bottle Gourd plant roots.  Is it an infection and what is the remedy.  Of course of the Methi green were healthy on harvest. 

I have the Methi plants in a tray and before sowing seeds, I have completely rotated the soil  and found the infection in the roots of the Plant    Should I add any nutrient before sowing the next harvest of either Palak, Methi or Lettuce.  Can I add BIOSTAR of VMSRF or any other nutrient before seeding.  My soil consisted of Vermicompost + Cocopeat + Soil (before the previous seeding).

While a picture of the infection might help. I think it is most likely fungal problem unless you saw any insect eggs. You should add some compost /nutrient so that the next harvest comes out good. BioStar can be added.

Also, turn the soil for couple of days and keep it in the hot sun.
Good luck.
