Research Project: FIELD EVALUATION OF A BROAD-SPECTRUM, NON-FUMIGANT PEST CONTROL FOR VEGETABLE AND STRAWBERRY PRODUCTION IN FLORIDA

Location: Subtropical Plant Pathology Research

Project Number: 6618-22000-040-08
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Mar 01, 2012
End Date: Mar 08, 2013

Objective:
To establish the effectiveness of the experimental material for the control of soilborne pests associated with the production of strawberries.

Approach:
Replicated, repeated research trials will be conducted to compare the commercial standard with the experimental material. Two strawberry trials will be conducted in cooperation with Florida Ag Research in order to evaluate the movement of the material in the bed and its efficacy against sting nematode. Nematode, weed, and fungal populations will be assessed in each trial. Plots will be harvested based on the commercial standard for the crop.
