Research Project: Evaluation of Non-Fumigant Systems for Specialty Crop Production

Location: Subtropical Plant Pathology Research

Project Number: 6034-22000-041-07
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jun 01, 2014
End Date: Jun 01, 2019

Objective:
Establish, replicate and repeat field trials in the crop production areas of interest.

Approach:
Field research trials will be conducted to determine efficacy and feasibility of ARS-derived crop production systems, such as anaerobic soil disinfestation, and combinations of potential or currently registered non-fumigant soil treatments. Research will include fumigant standards for each representative crop and may include combinations of materials with broad-spectrum activity against nematodes and pathogens with herbicides to improve pest management programs.
