Technical Abstract: The USDA, ARS, Beltsville Area has responded to the need to identify and develop alternative strategies for soil fumigation, which have been traditionally achieved with methyl bromide, by redirecting several research programs to address this critical problem. A total of six permanent scientists (SY's), along with their support personnel, are currently involved in this effort. These SY's represent several disciplines: plant pathology, soil science, microbiology, and nematology, which provides a range of expertise related to the control of soilborne pathogens. This poster identified the five projects that are involved in the overall program with their specific objectives, approaches, personnel, and progress to date.
