Start Date: Sep 29, 2010
End Date: Sep 28, 2015
Test different plant species for host range against a panel of pests and diseases of the Pacific Northwest. Hosts should demonstrate egg hatching induction, but lack of successful parasitism and reproductions for nematodes, lack of successful initial inoculation events and propagation in the case of fungi. Successful candidates will be examined for ease of cultivation, flowering, seed production, root mass and rooting depth.
