A study on the life history of the potato cyst-nematode G. rostochiensis in Cyprus showed that the nematode completes one generation per cropping season. It is possible for the nematode to initiate, but fail to complete, a second generation on the spring crop which has a longer growing season than the autumn crop and higher temperatures at the end. Nematode invasion in the autumn and spring crops occurs approximately 34 and 44 days after planting when the soil temperature, at a depth of 10 cm, is about 22° and 14.5°C, respectively. The times required by the nematode to develop from juveniles to embryonated egg on the autumn and spring crops were 56 and 63 days, or 529 and 416 day degrees C above 10°, respectively. Faster nematode development in autumn was probably due to greater amounts of accumulated heat especially during the early stages of development.
