Variation in responsiveness of Agrostis cultivars to defense activators and correlation with defense response genes

Posted by

Principle Researcher

Dr. Tom Hsiang, Dr. Paul Goodwin

Project Scope:

The objective of this project is to identify species and cultivars with strong responsiveness to defense activation by particular compounds. The potential benefit to turfgrass management could decrease the use of highly regulated synthetic pesticides in favor of lower risk alternatives, where the usage can be optimized by proper selection of cultivars.
