The proposed SEED FUND project is a proof-of-concept-study about cost-efficient and scalable microbial dsRNA production and exploring applications of dsRNA formulations as a new non-chemical strategy for the practical control of plant-parasitic nematodes in soil via RNA interference to protect crops and improve plant health in agri- and horticulture.
