Research Project: Sterile Litchi Tomato- PCN Eradication

Location: Temperate Tree Fruit and Vegetable Research

Project Number: 2092-21220-002-07-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 29, 2015
End Date: Sep 25, 2018

Objective:
Idaho was found to have the quarantine pest, Pale Cyst Nematode eradicating the nematode in 2006. This work contributes to the research aimed at eradicating the nematode by non-chemical means.

Approach:
Litchi tomato induces hatching but does not allow the nematode to successfully parasitize the plant.
