1) Develop sustainable crop production systems which include use of host plant resistance to manage reniform nematode in cotton; 2) develop adapted cotton breeding lines with resistance to reniform nematode.
Evaluate crop rotations for influence on seasonal changes in reniform nematode populations and crop yield; evaluate efficacy of seed treatment nematicides on resistant and susceptible cotton breeding lines or varieties; and develop cotto germplasm with resistance to reniform nematode from species related to cotton.
