An effective nonchemical control is needed to mange the invasive noxious weed tropical soda apple. This project will attempt to bring to market the world's first virus-based bioherbicide as an effective control for this weed. Reduction in chemical herbicide usage in livestock production, alleviation of tropical soda apple's encroachment into natural areas and croplands, preservation of biodiversity, and promotion and improvement in the sustainability and profitability of small and mid-size ranches are among the purposes of this project.
