Inserra, Istituto Nematologia Agraria, C.N.R., 70126 Bari, Italy. Plant Dis. 64:1025-1026. Copyright 1980 American Phytopathological Society. DOI: 10.1094/PD-64-1025.

The influence of Meloidogyne incognita on growth of a corn (Zea mays) hybrid was studied in pots that contained different nematode densities and were maintained at 2426 C for 75 days. The relation between fresh weight of tops and initial nematode density suggested a tolerance limit of 10 eggs per gram of soil under the experimental conditions.
