To develop new stonefruit rootstocks and management practices to control soilborne diseases and nematodes.
Soilborne diseases and nematodes will be investigated by (1) evaluating stonefruit germplasm on sites infested with diseases and nematodes of interest; (2) intercrossing and developing selections for further breeding, commercial testing and subsequent release; and (3) testing and evaluating new and novel combinations of chemical and cultural strategies in conjunction with genetic solutions.
