Develop a method for differentiating between viable and nonviable oospores in soil and/or quantify inoculum potential in soil. Determine the effect of extreme soil temperatures and moisture on oospore survival, molecular quantification, and lentil and pea susceptibility. Response-surface model of oospore survival or decay under varying soil environments over time.
