W3008 Committee Updates
“Integrated Onion Pest and Disease Management”
Multistate Research Project
October 1, 2017 – September 30, 2022
The W3008 project has built on the success of previous multi-state projects (W1008 and W2008), broadening the scope to include new studies for solving the US onion industry’s most important problems by:
- Evaluating onion germplasm for resistance to pathogens and insects.
- Investigating the biology, ecology, and management of onion thrips and other pests.
- Investigating the biology, epidemiology, and management of onion plant pathogens.
- Facilitating discussions between W3008 participants and onion industry stakeholders that will advance onion pest and disease management.

Multistate research allows State Agricultural Experiment Stations (SAES) to interdependently collaborate in projects that two or more states share as a priority, but for which no one state could address singularly. Learn more about multistate research projects here
