The effects of several organic additives, dung (steer manure), green manure (alfalfa), rotted wood shavings, oat hay, and chicken manure, upon the nematode fauna of an agricultural soil were studied and compared with unamended soil containing plant roots. Observations were also made on nematode predators and parasities. Easily decomposable amendments resulted in large increases in numbers of microphagus nematodes. The population of predacious Dorylaimus spp. was not influenced greatly by organic materials. The effects upon microphagus species differed for certain amendments. Dung and green manure appeared to promote greatest activity of predacious fungi.
