The concentration of the culture medium constituents was found to influence the number of nematodes penetrating host roots. Increasing the concentration of sucrose, macronutrient salts, and iron chelate resulted, up to a certain point, in a corresponding increase in penetration. Changes in penetration, however, did not correlate significantly with growth of the host. Penetration was unaffected when root growth was controlled by adding either 1-napthaleneacetic acid or 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid to the culture medium. Penetration was also found to be independent of the number of available root sites and of the number of nematodes in the inoculum. The number of nematodes found in the roots was related linearly to the number added to the cultures.
