Research Project: Essential Nematode Data to Enable Decision-Making by Pacific Northwest Grape Growers

Location: Horticultural Crops Research

Project Number: 5358-12220-004-12
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 24, 2011
End Date: Jun 30, 2015

Objective:
Provide Pacific Northwest (PNW) grape growers with more information about the damage potential and management of plant-parasitic nematode.

Approach:
1) Screen grape variety/clone combinations against Meloidogyne hapla in the greenhouse; 2) Determine macro and micro spatial dynamics of plant-parasitic nematodes in established PNW vineyards; and 3) Determine the impact of M. hapla on variety/clone establishment and productivity in a field setting.
