The soybean cyst nematode (SCN) is widely considered the most damaging soybean pest in the Midwest. Effective long-term management of SCN requires thorough knowledge of SCN biology and use of field scouting, resistant soybean varieties, and nonhost crops in an integrated management approach. An all-day workshop focused on SCN will be held on Wednesday, July 29, 2009, in Ames. Topics of discussion at the workshop will include: basic biology of SCN how the nematode modifies living soybean cells to support itself proper techniques for in-season scouting and soil sampling for SCN integrated management of SCN to maintain profitable soybean production how performance of SCN-resistant soybean varieties varies among SCN-infested fields
