The reaction of 18 grape rootstocks on the population growth of three ectoparasitic nematodes was studied in microplots. After 18 months in sandy loam soil, most grape cultivars had grown larger in the presence of Xiphinema americanum than where i...

Pathogenicity of all isolates of F. moniliforme [Gibberella fujikuroi] var. subglutinans from maize in Slovenia decreased regardless of the method of maintenance. Reduction in pathogenicity was greatest in highly pathogenic isolates. Low temp. and...
