Penetration and development of Heterodera zeae is influenced by temperature and host. On maize, development beyond second-stage juveniles is arrested at 15 ± 1°C; the nematode takes 12 days from inoculation to reach the adult female stage at 23 ± 1 °C and six days at 32 ± 1°C. Juveniles fail to penetrate wheat roots growing at 15 ± 1°C or 23 ± 1 °C but are able to develop and reproduce at 32 ± 1°C. The host also influences sex differentiation and on wheat more males and intersexes are produced than on maize. Wheat is considered a poor host under normal wheat growing conditions.
