Abstract
The use of soil fumigation with D-D has been found to overcome the problem of seedling decline in a coffee nursery and has produced a most striking improvement in plant growth. The resultant seedlings, however, have a very extensive root development which renders transplanting into the field a difficult problem. The nematode populations of coffee nurseries have been investigated, but do not suggest that nematodes are responsible for seedling decline. Various implications of the results are discussed.
