Research Project: Alternative Non-fumigant Nematicides for the Control of Root-Knot Nematodes (RKN) in Carrots

Location: Vegetable Crops Research

Project Number: 5090-21000-073-075-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jul 1, 2022
End Date: Jun 30, 2027

To screen carrot breeding lines for their resistance against Root Knot Nematodes.

- Establish a field trial site inoculated with root-knot nematodes to screen carrots for tolerance at the Cooperator's Research Farm. - Establish a second field trial at the same location with no nematodes to evaluate carrot performance without nematode damage. - Grow and evaluate diverse carrot genetic stocks in both trials.
