End Date: Jul 31, 2014
We will assess the insecticide metabolites formed by fungus on the surface of nut hulls by conducting metabolic profiling using fungal cultures. We will also integrate laboratory metabolic profiling results (above) with collection and analysis of field samples to assess fungal-derived insecticide products and residual insecticide effectiveness under field conditions.
