Research Project: CONTROL OF NEMATODES AND PLANT PARASITIC ROOT DISEASES IN ORNAMENTAL PRODUCTION SYSTEMS

Location: Crops Pathology and Genetics Research

Project Number: 5306-22000-015-02-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 3, 2011
End Date: Sep 30, 2012

Objective:
Develop methods to effectively control root-lesion and root-knot nematodes in ornamental production systems. Reduce transmission of root disease pathogens via irrigation water.

Approach:
Isolate, identify and evaluate microbial antagonists, and develop and evaluate cultural practices, to effectively control plant parasistic nematodes in production systems. Develop cultural practices to mitigate transmission of root disease pathogens via irrigation water.
