Periodic Reporting for period 1 - NemHatch (Unlocking mechanisms of cyst Nematode Hatching for sustainable cyst nematode control)
Reporting period: 2019-02-01 to 2021-01-31
The overall goal of NemHatch was to generate the knowledge required for a new strategy to control cyst nematodes in agricultural crops by manipulating the signaling relation – mediated by the hatching stimulants - between the host plant and the cyst nematodes.
2. Analysis with our new ultrasensitive analytical method demonstrated variation in HS production in cultivated genotypes.
3. The QTL for HS production is interesting and candidate genes were selected.
4. HS production is influenced by eviromental conditions.
