CONTROL OF NEMATODES AND PLANT PARASITIC ROOT DISEASES IN ORNAMENTAL PRODUCTION SYSTEMS
Project Number: 5306-22000-015-02
Specific Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Aug 03, 2011
End Date: Sep 30, 2012
Develop methods to effectively control root-lesion and root-knot nematodes in ornamental production systems. Reduce transmission of root disease pathogens via irrigation water.
Isolate, identify and evaluate microbial antagonists, and develop and evaluate cultural practices, to effectively control plant parasistic nematodes in production systems. Develop cultural practices to mitigate transmission of root disease pathogens via irrigation water.
