Efficacy Testing of Agricultural Chemicals

• Fungicide
• Herbicide
• Nematicide

Objectives

Objectives: To evaluate products for control of pests in agricultural production systems. Pests include nematodes, fungal/bacterial diseases, and weed management. Trial settings are conducted under systems to simulate commercial production practices. Research of new chemistry and methodology must be identified to reduce pest levels in commercial production systems.

Methods: Product applications include, foliar and soil sprays/incorporation, pre-plant soil drip and shank applications. A report is mailed to the trial sponsor containing a plot diagram, treatment protocol, data entry (ARM and Microsoft excel), data tables and communication log.
