Abstract

The soybean cyst nematode (SCN) is the top yield-suppressing pathogen in soybean production in the United States. Farmers are struggling to effectively manage populations of SCN, which are developing increased reproduction on the commonly used source of resistance. Seed treatments for SCN management are a relatively new option, but performance often is inconsistent. There is increasing interest in the possibility of using cover crops to manage SCN in soybean fields.
