Pratylenchus penetrans colonised roots of Pisum sativum and Phaseolus vulgaris better from fine graded sand than from perlite. Multiplication was more successful when 200 rather than 20 nematodes were introduced. The growth of Ph. vulgaris was decreased by introducing 200 nematodes compared with 20 and, in perlite, was inversely proportional to the final number of nematodes in the roots probably because root contact with the growing medium concentrated the nematode attack. The growth of Pi. sativum was less in sand than perlite and was unaffected by Pr. penetrans, possibly because its roots grew rapidly in perlite and offset any damage.
