Soybean Cyst Nematode resurgence can be controlled

Soybean Cyst Nematode (SCN) is not a new pest. We have been dealing with it for years. Why is it suddenly garnering so much attention?

We have known about SCN for 40 years and have been controlling it for 20. Dr. George Bird of Michigan State University says the resurgence is happening because we have only used one form of attack.

Dr. Bird says to be effective against SCN, you really need to implement about 4 different practices.

Don’t think for a minute that Mother Nature will do you a favor by freezing them out this winter.
