Summary

The aims of this project are to combine the considerable expertise within the three universities and apply this knowledge to the evaluation of phytochemicals as effective, and safer, control agents for economically important nematodes. It is expected that at the end of the research species-specific natural nematicides, and possibly a multi-species nematicide, based on phytochemicals from either single plant species or a combination of the species for maximal nematicidal activity, will have been identified.
