This project will investigate the performance of Ethanedinitrile as an alternative to methyl bromide for control of soil-borne plant pathogens, plant pathogenic nematodes, and weeds.
Field trials will be conducted over two years in two locations in which ethanedinitrile will be applied. Soil and plant samples will be collected from treated areas and analyzed for nematode populations in roots and soil, and root disease caused by parasitic nematodes.
