Research Project: Stonefruit Rootstock Breeding and Development for Resistance to Soilborne Diseases and Parasitic Nematodes

Location: Fruit and Nut Research

Project Number: 6042-21000-004-03
Project Type: Trust

Start Date: Apr 08, 2014
End Date: Apr 07, 2019

Objective:
To develop new stonefruit rootstocks and management practices to control soilborne diseases and nematodes.

Approach:
Soilborne diseases and nematodes will be investigated by: 1) evaluating stonefruit germplasm on sites infested with diseases and nematodes of interest; 2) intercrossing and developing selections for further breeding, commercial testing and subsequent release; and 3) testing and evaluating new and novel combinations of chemical and cultural strategies in conjunction with genetic solutions.
