The roots of single and double low cultivars of oilseed rape were attacked by six species of Pratylenchus in in vitro culture. The degree of damage was dependent on the individual nematode species and rape cultivar concerned and was independent of crucic acid or glucosinolate content of the rapeseed. The effects caused by each species of Pratylenchus were not consistent, except that P. penetrans decreased root growth of all cultivars. Although it is unclear whether it can complete the life cycle outside the root, Pratylenchus commonly feeds ectoparasitically on rape roots in vitro. The rape cultivars tested were tolerant of some Pratylenchus species and some may be resistant.
