The growth of early maturing potato cultivars was more affected by nematode infection than that of late maturing cultivars and al1 infected plants contained a greater proportion of dry matter than uninfected plants, possibly because they have a smaller ratio of ce11 contents to ce11 Wall materials. Initially, infected plants used water more efficiently i.e. they used less water than uninfected plants to produce unit dry matter. Later on, accumulation of dry matter was much reduced in infected… CONTINUE READING
