We thank the Northern New York Agricultural Development Program for continued long-term research support focused on alfalfa snout beetle. Without this continued support, none of this progress would have been possible. In addition, we thank the New York Farm Viability Institute for their continued support for the outreach portions of our effort. Extending knowledge to the agribusiness community regarding the rearing and application of biocontrol nematodes would have been extremely difficult without NYFVI support.
