A differential quasifield is a natural generalization of a differential field in characteristic p > 0. Elementary properties of differential quasifields are considered, and a generalized version of the theorem on the connection between linear independence over constants and the wronskian is presented. The notion of a partitioned differential quasifield is introduced, and the behavior of partitioned differential quasifields is considered, including under an extension of scalars.
