Research Area

Biology and management of plant-parasitic nematodes associated with small fruits

Description of Research

My lab's primary goal is to develop nematode management strategies for Pacific Northwest small fruit industries. Plant-parasitic nematode can cause considerable yield loss in perennial fruit production systems if left unmanaged. Current research includes: identification of nematode resistance in red raspberry; elucidation of the population biology of virus-transmitting nematodes and; evaluation of cover crops, nematicides and amendments in small fruit production systems for nematode control.
