Research Project: Evaluation of Non-fumigant Systems for Specialty Crop Production

Location: Citrus and Other Subtropical Products Research

Project Number: 6034-22000-043-01-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jun 1, 2014
End Date: Jun 1, 2019

Establish, replicate and repeat field trials in the crop production areas of interest.

Field research trials will be conducted to determine efficacy and feasibility of ARS-derived crop production systems, such as anaerobic soil disinfestation, and combinations of potential or currently registered non-fumigant soil treatments. Research will include fumigant standards for each representative crop and may include combinations of materials with broad-spectrum activity against nematodes and pathogens with herbicides to improve pest management programs.
