Kansas State University research team receives patent to
control destructive parasite


from Kansas State University via PhysOrg.com

The invention, "Compositions and Methods for Controlling Plant Parasitic Nematodes," was developed by four Kansas State University researchers: Harold Trick, professor of plant pathology; Timothy Todd, an instructor of plant pathology; Michael Herman, associate professor of biology; and Judith Roe, former assistant professor of biology. The researchers focused their work on the soybean cyst nematode, a destructive parasite that attacks the roots of soybean plants. Farmers across the country lose nearly $860 million every year because of the nematode. The research foundation is working with the National Institute for Strategic Technology Acquisition and Commercialization, to license the patent, said Marcia Molina, foundation vice president. more
