Biological suppression of root-lesion nematodes in grain-growing soils

Seymour, Nicole. Biological suppression of root-lesion nematodes in grain-growing soils. Lead Agency: Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation (DEEDI).

Project Start: 1 July 2010

Project End:30 June 2014


This project proposes a focused research program to understand the nature of suppressiveness of northern grain-growing soils to root-lesion nematodes. There are 5 components of this research proposal covering general suppressiveness, specific suppressiveness, the role of the soil food web in suppressiveness, molecular technologies to monitor suppressive agents and enhancing suppressiveness through the farming system.
