What can entomopathogenic nematodes do for soil health?
Dr. Fatma Kaplan, CEO of Pheronym, Dr. David Shapiro-Ilan, Research Leader at USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS) SE Fruit and Tree Nut Research Unit in Byron, GA, and Dr. Jacob Parnell, Sr. Agronomist USA at Biome Makers, discuss how entomopathogenic nematodes and their pheromones can provide unforeseen benefits to soil health and cropping systems.
Pheronym™ is an agricultural biotechnology company developing non-toxic solutions for plant protection. They use pheromones to control the behavior and development of microscopic roundworms called nematodes. They conducted a study with Biome Makers' BeCrop® Trials to assess the efficacy of nematodes with/without pheromones in a peach orchard located in Byron, GA. Pheronym™ completed BeCrop® Trials to analyze 3 products: entomopathogenic nematodes (EPN), Pheromone, and EPN + Phermone in sandy loam soil. The research was also a collaborative effort with Dr. David Shapiro-Ilan, an expert on beneficial nematodes, and a research leader at the USDA-Agricultural Research Service (ARS), Byron, GA.
