It is important to assess the tolerance of new potato cultivars with partial resistance to potato cyst nematode attack. The experiments described here are intended to quantify tolerance adequately using a minimum of resources. When test plants were spaced widely in the field trials it was also possible to estimate their resistance levels but standard plant spacing allowed roots of neighbouring plants to encroach on a test plant's root space and to interfere with attempts to assay resistance. Standard plant spacing did, however, give more realistic yields per plant and competition from neighbouring plants was standardised by surrounding each test plant by four identical guard plants (cv. Desiree). Regressions of yield on severity of nematode attack were drawn when nematode infestation varied naturally across the trial site or when different levels of attack were created by applying nematicide at a range of dose rates. Cara was the most tolerant cultivar tested, with a complete spectrum of tolerance shown by other cultivars/clones. Some clones with a high degree of resistance were tolerant and it is precisely these that this type of test seeks to identify.
