Population density of several species of plant parasitic nematodes found in the soil and roots of winter wheat and spring barley grown in a crop rotation and long-term monoculture were analysed. The following species appeared to be the dominating in a long-term monoculture: Tylenchorhynchus dubius, Merlinius microdorus, Pratylenchus neglectus and Heterodera avenae. Abundance of the nematodes in the initial stage of wheat and barley growth was lower than the tolerance limit.
