On Vineland silt loam and Fox loamy sand, plants of flue-cured tobacco, whether infested with Pratylenchus penetrans or not, grew better under a high moisture regime than under a low moisture regime. On both soils and under both moisture regimes, plant growth was significantly retarded by P. penetrans. Relative to the respective controls, growth of plants infested with P. penctrans was reduced by the same proportion on Vineland loam under high and low moisture regimes and on Fox sand under a high moisture regime. On Fox sand, under a low moisture regime, however, the reduction in growth was proportionately much smaller. Plants infested with P. penetrans required less water each day than uninfested plants. The relationship between available soil moisture and nematode injury is discussed.
