    Union Catalogue of Agricultural Libraries in the Netherlands

    The WUR Library Catalogue contains bibliographic data on books and periodicals held by the libraries of Wageningen University and Research Centre and some 15 associated libraries. Holding data are added to each record.

    Subjects covered include Agrotechnology, Food and Food Production, Plant and Animal Sciences, Soil Science, Geo-information, Landscape and Spatial Planning, Water and Climate, Ecosystem Studies, Economics and Society.

    The joint collections of the participating libraries cover a substantial part of the internationally available scientific literature in these disciplines.

    As far as Dutch scientific literature in these fields is concerned, coverage can be considered near 100%, including much of the so-called "grey literature".

    All titles are entered in their original language. Keywords are added to facilitate subject searching.

    The database is updated every day and now contains over 830.000 records.

Thousands of plants of tuber-forming species of the genus Solanum were tested for resistance to the potato-root eelworm. Much attention was given to breeding for resistance by using resistant andigenum lines in crosses with S.tuberosum. In 1952 for the first time large numbers of resistant andigenum seedlings (numbers CPC 1673 and 1685) could be crossed among themselves and with susceptible potato varieties. The explanation of the observed segregations into resistant and susceptible was based on the hypothesis that resistance was due to one dominant gene H and that a tetraploid inheritance scheme could be applied.

Resistant offspring of CPC 1673 was tested at the Estación Experimental Agricola de la Molina, Peru. All the resistant offspring were severely attacked by the potato- root eelworms occurring in the soil of 'Maco Farm'. Therefore the Peruvian parasite, at least in one place, is of a different race from that. in the Netherlands.

In Scotland an aggressive race of the parasite had been found in some places. This race multiplied profusely in resistant potato varieties derived from CPC 1673.

It was advised that the legal restriction in the Netherlands against growing potatoes on the same field be provisionally maintained.
