The density of beet eelworm (Heterodera schachtii) was estimated annually for 4 years in a field with non-host crops after a beet crop had shown symptoms of attack. Rivanol proved to be satisfactory for the estimation of beet eelworm. There was little correlation between severity of symptoms in the beet crop and the final density of eelworm. Normal cultivations caused an appreciable movement of cysts in the soil. The rate of decline was independant of eelworm density, and was less in the first year than in the next two. It is suggested that two processes control beet eelworm numbers: intra-specific competition within host roots, and the effects of the physical environment on emergence.
