The rate of decline of beet eelworm (Heterodera schachtii) was measured annually from 1955-1958 in twenty Spalding microplots, and in another ten in 1957 and 1958. With new cysts decline was negligible for one year, then became about 30% per annum. The decrease in egg numbers was 36% per annum during the second year. At other ages it was about 60% per annum. Control of beet eelworm is usually based on crop rotation, and it is important to know the rate at which a soil population decreases in order to determine suitable intervals between host crops. From 1955 to 1958 the annual rates of decline for beet eelworm were measured in microplots filled with very fine sandy loam (Fen silt) from Spalding, Lincs. (Jones, 1956).
