Abstract:
Twentythree varieties of sorghum, Sorghum bicolor, were evaluated for susceptibility to the cotton root -knot nematode, Meloidogyne incognita race 3. Eggs per gram of root were used as a measure of nematode reproduction and host susceptibility. The nematode reproduced on all varieties tested Mean egg counts were lowest on the varieties Northrup King (NK) KS-737, MF.; NK 1580,M; NK Ks-735 M.F.; NK 714Y MF.; NK Lt. Bronze X 609 M; Ciba-NK C-1506, M; and Pioneer 8877, but these varieties are still considered to be hosts capable of sustaining or increasing nematode populations in cotton fields. All varieties were better hosts than cotton.
