DEPARTMENT OF

Botany and Horticulture.



Plants Affected by Root-Knot.
Frequently information is asked of the department
concerning the plants which are -illt..-l with nematode
root-galls or root-knot, caused by the nematode worm.
(HETERODERA .RADICICOLA). For two years observations
have been noted, and based upon these the truck crops
Shave Jbeen roughly divided into two groups: The first of
these comprises those plants which are badly infested by
the nematode, the second, those which are not all affected
or are only attacked to such an extent as not to interfere
seriously with the crop.
FIRST LIST. SECOND LIST.
Cantaloupe, Cabbage,
Celeiy, Carrot,
Cucumber, Cauliflower,
Egg-plant, Corn,
Lettuce, Beet,
Okra, Onion,
Peas, Parsnip,
Tomato, Radish,
Pepper,
Strawberry,
Salsify,
Turnip.
Of the fruit trees, the peach and fig are most serious-
ly affected. This list will be found useful to some extent
in determining what crops to grow on nematode infested
grounds. H. HAROLD HUME,
Botanist and Horticulturist.
