Genetic control of dormancy in the potato cyst-nematode

  • H. El Shatoury


Matings of early-hatched parents of the potato cyst-nematode:H. rostochiensis, gave F1 which hatched early-late-hatched parents gave progeny which showed dormancy, the extent fo which was in most instances determined by the parents' time of hatching. It is suggested that dormancy is genetically controlled.
