Abstract

Chemical control of the sugar-beet nematode—Heterodera schachtii—would eliminate disadvantages of control by crop rotation which normally requires at least 3—4 years of non-host crops. In some areas the only alternate crops which can be grown are not so profitable as sugar beets or are themselves hosts of the nematode.
