The development of the root-knot nematode on a number of hosts in the Gold Coast was studied, and the host/parasite relationships compared. The life-cycle of the most advanced individuals on tomato and cowpea was completed in 28 days, at soil temperatures of 26-31° C; on maize, soya and tobacco the life cycle occupied 33 days, but individual variation was considerable and the "average" life-cycle differed much more from host to host. On two species of Crotalaria the life cycle was never completed, larvae dying before, or shortly after, completing the final moult. The rate of egg-production did not differ markedly on different hosts during the limited period under observation, but total egg-production was not studied. A variety of cowpea, Machakos, and a hybrid maize were shown to be resistant to root-knot attack; two species of Crotalaria were highly resistant, but Jack bean and Velvet bean and two other Crotalaria spp. were not resistant.
