Research focuses on detection, biology and management of plant-parasitic nematodes that restrict production of field crops in North Dakota. One of the research goals is to identify and employ the linkage of modern diagnostic methods and development of resistant cultivars to improve yield and quality of field crops that are threatened or potentially-threatened by nematode diseases.
