Use of resistant soybean varieties is a very effective strategy for managing soybean cyst nematode (SCN), and numerous SCN-resistant soybean varieties are available for Iowa soybean growers. Each year, public and private SCN-resistant soybean varieties are evaluated in SCN-infested and noninfested fields throughout Iowa by Iowa State University personnel. The research described in this report was performed to assess the agronomic performance of maturity groups (MG) II and III SCN-resistant soybean varieties and to determine the effects of the varieties on SCN population densities.
