Research Project: Demonstration of Mebr Alternatives Plus Herbicides for Broad-Spectrum Pest Control in Open-Field Nurseries

Location: Crops Pathology and Genetics Research

Project Number: 0500-00044-030-07
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jul 01, 2010
End Date: Sep 30, 2014

Objective:
1) completion of a nursery trial initiated in 2008, which focuses on managing 1, 3-D emissions and pest control, and 2)testing and expanded demonstration of integrated alternatives to methyl bromide at commercial nurseries.

Approach:
Nematode sampling will be completed and final nursery stock quality data will be analyzed. At harvest, soil and root samples will be collected and analyzed for the presence of parasitic nematodes. Analysis of the two nursery trials and two emission trials will be conducted and information transfered to interested stakeholders, scientists, and regulators via appropriate presentations, journal publications, and reports.
