Resistant soybean varieties are a very effective strategy for managing the soybean cyst nematode (SCN), producing acceptable yields and suppressing reproduction of the nematode. The number of soybean varieties with genetic resistance to SCN in maturity groups I, II, and III has increased dramatically, from a few dozen in the early 1990s to more than 600 currently. Today, most soybean seed companies have SCN-resistant soybean varieties available for Iowa growers, and yield results of soybean variety trials conducted by private testing programs and universities have begun to be released in the past few weeks.
