Abstract Not Available – First paragraph follows:
Sugar-beet yields of 18.1-22.6 tons per acre were produced in a field heavily infested with the sugar-beet nematode– Heterodera schachtii Schmidt–near Salinas when plantings were made in February or earlier. Plantings in March and April produced 6.1-8.8 tons per acre.
