    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.

The study on occurrence, biology and significance of H. rostochiensis on potato was the first quantitative study of a plant nematode and laid the basis for regulatory control of this new parasite. Known facts about Heterodera, particularly H. rostochiensis were tabulated and summarized from 243 references, and geographical distribution was mapped. Morphology, life cycle, number of generations and population dynamics were studied; symptoms of plants and crops were described; the host list was compiled.

Experiments and observations demonstrated the noxious character of the nematode, the rapid increase of mild infestations, the slow decrease and persistence of established infestations, the steady spread (expressed mathematically), the difficulty of finding light infestations and therefore the weakness of repressive quarantine.

None of 358 potato varieties and 18 other Solanum species tested was resistant; they differed in susceptibility. Chemical control was effective but uneconomic.

Organic manures and different tilling had little effect. Nematode density before planting was closely related to ensuing damage. Crop rotation maintained yields without eradicating infestation. Early lifting was effective in the same way.

Examination of soil samples was useful for finding and diminishing infestation and damage; techniques were developed and put into operation. In anticipation of resistant potato varieties and curative procedures, regulatory control was recommended.
