Variety Trial Results Show Differences in SCN Control Among VarietiesIntegrated Crop Management News
AbstractThe soybean cyst nematode (SCN) is one of the most damaging pests of soybean in Iowa and throughout the Midwest. The amount of yield loss that occurs is directly related to the SCN egg population densities (numbers) in the soil. Keeping SCN egg population densities from increasing to high levels is needed to maintain profitable soybean production in SCN-infested fields. An effective way to produce high soybean yields and keep SCN egg population densities in check is to grow SCN-resistant soybean varieties.
