Trials comparing various crop rotations including hosts susceptible and non-susceptible to Meloidogyne javanica were established in a field naturally infested with the nematode and an associated isolate of the bacteria Pasteuria penetrans in Senegal. Analysis of the modified mortality K-factor indicated a delayed infestation of M. javanica by P. penetrans on the susceptible crops and a more direct dependence on the non-susceptible crops.
