The effects of four systems of field management on Meloidogyne javanica (Treub) Chitwood infestation of tomatoes were studied over three seasons 1951-54. Counts of nematode larvae in tomato roots, root gall ratings of tomato plants and yields of tomatoes, were used to estimate these effects. Growing of susceptible tomatoes in the same soil year after year gave a uniform severe infestation which usually depressed yields. Growing of nematode resistant hybrid tomatoes assured good yields but did not reduce the nematode population to make the land suitable for susceptible crops, since the resistance varied from plant to plant, permitting some reproduction of the nematodes. Resistance was decreased by repeated planting. Clean fallow for three years reduced nematode infestation significantly. Fallowing had the effect of increasing yield quite apart from any increase due to reduced nematode attack. When the fallow was broken by a susceptible crop the nematode population increased rapidly. Summer fallow with winter barley cover crop gave the same result as complete clean fallow.
