Workgroup Information

Integrated Management of Soilborne Pests

Summary Our provisional workgroup organized and conducted two workshops/training sessions in 2005 and have another planned prior to the end of the 2005-06 fiscal year. Also, the acting chair made formal presentations at both the 2005 Weed Workgroup meeting and the 2006 Nematology Workgroup meeting to gauge their interest in supporting ratification of the Integrated Management of Soilborne Pests Workgroup. Although broad support for this group was not strongly expressed by other existing workgroup memberships, it may be useful to propose its continuation under the umbrella of the Pest Management in ANR continuing conference. This is the only workgroup where those working in the areas of managing soilborne nematodes, pathogens, and weed propagules, soil disinfestation methods, and/or methyl bromide alternatives could communicate and interact in a multidisciplinary and integrated fashion.
