Brief Project Summary:

Entomopathogenic nematodes are widespread and this potential predator can control outbreaks of soil insect pests, but population distributions and their ability to manage pest populations in Maryland is unknown.

These preliminary data will allow the design of an experimental framework intended to manage soils to promote the long-term persistence of entomopathogenic nematodes and their biological control possibilities.

Information And Results
Final Project Results

The United Soybean Research Retention policy will display final reports with the project once completed but working files will be purged after three years. And financial information after seven years. All pertinent information is in the final report or if you want more information, please contact the project lead at your state soybean organization or principal investigator listed on the project.
