Title: A Safer Class of Agricultural Nematicides Based on Natural Fatty Acid Products
Agency: USDA
Contract: 2006-33610-17182
Award Amount: $296,000.00
 

Abstract:

Plant parasitic nematodes are among the most important crop pathogens in the United States, causing an estimated $7-9 billion in lost yield annually. Traditional nematicides, including organophosphates, are under severe regulatory pressure because of toxological and environmental concerns. The purpose of this project is to develop a new, safer nematode control agent for U.S. growers.
