Hatch of embryonated eggs of M. naasi removed from barley roots in autumn and placed in water at 20° for 8 weeks, varied from 38-57%. Other eggs obtained at the same time could be stimulated to give up to 90% hatch at 20° following storage at 5° or 10° for at least 7 weeks; eggs stored at either 0°, 5°, 10° or 15° for 11 weeks all gave a 90% hatch when transferred to 20°. Egg masses stored for up to 15 months at 10° still hatched normally. Treatment with sodium hypochlorite (0.4%) or sodium hypochlorite followed by ascorbic acid (0.4%) stimulated hatch from egg masses. It is concluded that eggs of M. naasi show a diapause phenomenon which has some features in common with other nematodes whose eggs do not show rapid hatch in favourable conditions.
