Pratylenchus fallax Seinhorst penetrated root tips, the region of root hair development and the junction of main and lateral roots of wheat, barley and sugar beet. Many tended to penetrate together at one site. In microbiologically sterile cultures, roots of sugar beet rapidly became necrotic: barley and wheat roots were damaged less and more slowly. Transverse sections of wheat roots showed that cells were severely damaged and collapsed before symptoms showed externally. The endodermis became thickened and discoloured in response to heavy attack. P. fallax reproduced better on roots of wheat and barley than on those of sugar beet.
