Episode 43

Plant Parasitic Nematode Biology and Their Horticultural Impacts

This episode: guest interviewer and orchardist Molly Thurston returns! This time her guest is Tom Forge, a research soil ecologist at the Summerland Research and Development Centre who specializes in nematology and integrated root health management for perennial fruit crops.

Molly interviewed Tom so we can learn about the biology of plant-parasitic nematodes, how they impact tree fruit and other horticultural crops, and how growers can deal with them in organic production systems.
