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.
