Severe attacks by Ditylenchus destructor on potatoes in the south of Sweden appeared to have arisen from cultivation in infested soil. The principle risk of using slightly infected seed tubers, which in a field experiment gave a far less damaged crop than more severely injured ones, seems to be the possibility of spreading the nematode to new locations. For the occurrence of soil infestation, in some places very heavy, weed hosts were of major importance. Important weed hosts were Mentha arvensis, Stachys palustris, Potentilla anserina and Rumex acetosella, of which the last two have not before been reported as hosts. Underground decaying remains of potato plants infected by D. destructor may in autumn contain nematodes of some stage or stages which over-winter without the necessity for living plant tissue. Nevertheless, damage in potatoes seemed to become slighter after continuous cultivation of this crop.
