Abstract
Many plants are regarded as resistant to root-knot nematodes, not because larvae fail to enter but because they fail to develop after entering. Sasser and Taylor (1952) showed that, in addition to normal entry and development of root-knot nematode larvae, there are also other reactions depending on the plant species involved. Larvae may fail to enter the roots, enter in reduced numbers with little on development, or enter in large numbers with varying degrees of development ranging from none at all to a few of the individuals reaching maturity. Development is generally slower in resistant than in susceptible cultivars and few, if any, nematodes reach maturity (Rohde, 1965).
