A Survey to Assess Awareness of a Soil-borne Pathogen, Root-knot Nematode, among Vegetable Farmers in the Temperate Region

Root-knot nematodes cause damage on a wide range of vegetable crops. They are widely prevalent throughout regions where summers are long and winters are mild. However, root-knot nematodes are not confined to tropic and subtropic environments. Northern root-knot nematode is capable of surviving harsh winters in the northern U.S.; the disease is troublesome in greenhouses everywhere, and climate change may potentially change root-knot nematode species and distribution.

We are asking vegetable farmers’ and agricultural professionals’ to take this short survey https://purdue.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_73bKsHblfzLZQdU  The purpose of the survey is to assess awareness about the pathogen among vegetable farmers in our region and understand research and extension needs in controlling this pest. The survey will take no more than 5 minutes. Thank you very much for your attention.

The project is funded by United States Department of Agriculture National Institute of Food and Agriculture grant no. 2021-51181-35904.
