Freshly hatched juveniles of Meloidogyne jaaanica were stored at 28° either in dilute medium (4 mM phosphate buffer pH 7) or in concentrated medium (0.3 M Na Cl in dilute medium). At weekly for the former and biweekly intervals for the latter, juveniles were assayed for motility, infectivity and food reserves (carbohydrates, lipids and proteins). Motility and infectivity of juveniles stored in dilute medium decreased to zero in 5 weeks during which 60 % of the food reserves were consumed. The rate at which food reserves were consumed by juveniles stored in concentrated medium, which induced a state of quiescence, was 7.5 times slower: motility and infectivity remained unchanged during 10 weeks. The rate of reproduction of juveniles stored in dilute medium was unaffected.
