Abstract

Soybean cyst nematode (SCN) is a major limiting factor in soybean production throughout Iowa and elsewhere. SCN-resistant varieties are the only management strategy currently available; while they work well in preventing rapid increases of SCN, they do not reduce existing SCN densities effectively. Early detection of SCN infestations is key in managing this pest. This project developed a slide set and began work on a videotape to educate Iowa growers about SCN biology and symptoms, along with strategies that can be employed when infestations are detected in early stages.
