Distribution of the roots of potato plants infested with potato cyst-nematodes was examined 111/2 weeks after planting and soil water content measured through the growing season. Heavily infested plants had much less extensive root systems than lightly-infested ones, with root density particularly decreased in the zone below the ridge. Amounts of lateral roots were decreased much more than those of main roots. Soil water content was much smaller in lightly-infested plots than in heavily-infested ones, where the plants grew poorly and senesced early even when abundant soil moisture was available. The findings within the five papers in this series are examined and it is concluded that, although the early poor growth of heavily-infested potato plants is associated with decreased rates of nutrient uptake, later information suggests that other mechanisms may be involved.
