The severity of root rot of peas caused by the fungus Aphanomyces euteiches was increased by the nematode Tylenchorhynchus martini when the population was as low as 375 nematodes per 5 inch pot. The increase in root rot following addition of nematodes was present only when a strongly pathogenic isolate of A. euteiches was used and this increase was directly related to the number of nematodes added. This effect was not obtained in the presence of a weakly pathogenic isolate of the fungus. The number of parasitic nematodes recovered from the soil was directly related to the number of nematodes added. However, in fallow soil, without peas, the number of T. martini recovered after the same period of time was considerably less than in the soil inoculated with the same number of nematodes in the presence of pea plants.
