The research is focused on the mapping of phytonematodes, efficacy tests and development of molecules, chemical and biological, for the management of nematodes in different cultures.
Studies of phytonematodes reproduction factor in different cultures (cultivation/hybrid). Aim to understand the reaction of these plants against their ability to multiply (host or non-host) these species in their tissue. This information is of extreme importance for building a good management program.
Evaluations of the efficiency of nematicide molecules are carried out to control the main parasitic species of: soybean, cotton, corn, beans, tobacco, sugarcane, among others.
The main technical obstacles in nematology research are:
- Nematode reproduction factor in soybean cultivars.
- Effect of cover crops on nematode dynamics.
- Nematicidal Effectiveness Tests.
- Cultural management associated with biological and chemical control via seeds and furrow in nematode population fluctuation.
- Estimation of nematode population level through imaging.
