Studies were made of the influence of tobacco ringspot virus and Meloidogyne javanica Treub (root-knot nematode), alone and in combination on the growth and mineral content of french beans. Plants infected with TRSV were clearly intolerant to infection as indicated by their stunted growth and their marked difference in content of phosphorus, chlorine, copper, manganese and zinc from uninfected plants. In contrast, plants infected with M. javanica were tolerant to infection by this parasite; no difference was detected between nematode-infected plants and the uninfected controls. Although plants inoculated with both virus and nematode consistently deviated most from controls there was no evidence of a statistically significant interaction of the combined infection on the bean plants.
