Abstract

Most soil borne plant parasites grow more vigorously in soil freed of competing organisms by previous sterilization than in natural soils where they have to compete with other organisms. Some of the competing organisms are antagonistic to the parasites and tend to suppress the activity of the detrimental forms.
