An experiment is described in which the soil surrounding a potato plant was separated into 147 blocks, 10 weeks after planting. Percentage hatch was inversely related to root development, this being related to the position within the root system. The production of new females is seen to be correlated with total root production but not to main: lateral root ratios. From a total development of 82.334 g (298.17 m) of root 67,956 new females were produced, a multiplication factor of 0.87 with the egg content having a multiplication rate of 3.1.
