The long term objective of our research program is to develop sustainable plant-parasitic nematode management systems for the small fruit industries. Our specific goals are to:

  1. Develop economic thresholds for plant-parasitic nematodes important to small fruits and understand under which conditions these thresholds apply;
  2. Develop production systems which promote root health and encourage the establishment of plant-parasitic nematode suppressive environments, and;
  3. Continue to provide information on the efficacy of current plant-parasitic nematode management strategies (nematicides, resistance, cover crops, etc.) relevant to the industries.
