Project Information

Summary:

Note to readers, attached is the complete final report for FNE94-068.

A simple statistical test comparing the mean nematode population in the control plots to the means of other plots indicate that there was no conclusive difference between treated and untreated plots, either for the nematodes of interest or other unfamiliar species that appeared. More involved and sophisticated analysis might be used to compare all the treatments to each other, but the high variation in results and the lack of consistent findings of the nematode populations indicates such analysis might not be useful. Essentially, these is no apparent indication that treated areas behaved differently from the control or from each other.
