Males of Meloidogyne spp. moved furthest in sand of particle size 300-800 μ at 30° C over a period of 48 to 72 h and at a suction of 15 to 30 cm of water which is close to the point of inflexion of the moisture characteristic curve of the sand. However, statistically significant interactions occurred between the three factors of temperature, suction and time hence the optimum conditions of any one factor for movement are influenced by the values of the other factors. For example, the optimum suction for movement varies with temperature. The experiments provided no evidence that the mobility of males was increased in the presence of females.
