We will develop methods and information that can be used for eradication of all three types of Globodera threatening the United State Potato Industry—G. pallida, G. rostochiensis and the new atypical Globodera.1. Identify/develop/evaluate superior trap crops that can stimulate a suicide hatch. 2. Explore ways to produce commercial amounts of hatching factors that could be delivered to infested fields through chemigation etc while growing some other crop. 3. Examine factors that influence hatching of the new Globodera and to determine to what extent it responds to the same trap crops and hatching factors as does G. pallida.
