Trials with nematicides at three sites confirmed that potato plants heavily infested with potato cyst-nematode contain a smaller concentration of N, P and K and more Ca in their haulm dry matter than lightly infested plants. Attempts to mitigate the effects of nematodes on plant growth and nutrient uptake by applying additional fertilisers to infested plants were partially successful in a pot test but unsuccessful in a field trial. In the pot test, most of the improvement in growth of the nematode-infested plants occurred towards the end of the experiment when the nematode inoculum was probably becoming depleted. In the field trial, increasing the amounts of fertiliser applied did not greatly increase uptake, especially of P and K, or growth and yield. Percentage K in the leaf dry matter was closely correlated with growth and final yield but it is suggested that P and N are more likely to be deficient in nematode infested plants.
