This paper describes the effect of two levels of rainfall in April, upon the root invasion of Oats (Avena sativa) by the Cereal Root Eelworm (Heterodera avenae). The lower rainfall during April was associated with a larger root system and fewer larvae per plant and therefore with a much lower density of larvae per g of root. It was shown that the number of larvae endoparasitic in a root system is dependent upon the weight of that root system.
