Start date

End date

Objective
1) Evaluate the potential of persistent biocontrol nematodes (entomopathogenic) to prevent or reduce stand losses in corn grown for silage under New York (NY) dairy-field crop production conditions (with cover crops and animal manures).2) Evaluate the potential of persistent biocontrol nematodes (entomopathogenic) to prevent or reduce stand losses in corn and soybeans grown under NY cash grain conditions (without cover crops and animal manures).3) Evaluate the potential of persistent biocontrol nematodes (entomopathogenic) to prevent or reduce stand losses in organic production systems under NY conditions.
