- Develop more sustainable nematode management strategies for Florida agriculture - Evaluate new and upcoming more selective and safer nematicides, including how products move in soil water - Optimize current chemical fumigant practices (placement, delivery, integration with non-fumigants in soil) and evaluate potential of non-chemical fumigant alternatives (biofumigation, anaerobic soil disinfestation, solarization) in vegetables and strawberries - good soil movement/distribution is critical - Study how nematodes in FL soils can be spread with water (rainfall, irrigation)
