Research Project: Nematode Early Warning System (NEWS) Facilitates Real-Time Remote Monitoring of Soil Pathogens in Agricultural Fields

Location: Vegetable Research

Project Number: 6080-22000-031-026-A
Project Type: Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Feb 1, 2023
End Date: Mar 31, 2024

Develop a functional biosensor that can be used to detect the presence of plant parasitic nematodes.

The Cooperator will make prototype biosensors that will be tested for their ability to detect and/or identify different nematode species in the lab. Once we have a functional biosensor, we will test it in conjunction with the prototype probes and baiting approaches developed at the USVL.
