Project Summary

The project's goal is to improve soybean cyst nematode (SCN) management in the North Central states. As part of this overall goal the researchers will conduct several large scale on-farm demonstrations to provide information usable in all states which will be summarized and distributed as fact sheets. In addition, the effects of different resistant sources on SCN populations will be demonstrated.

In 2009, thirty-one large field plots were established in the twelve states and Ontario. The participants tested multiple varieties containing the major SCN resistance genes. At some locations several different soybean varieties contained the PI88788 source of resistance.

The 2008 data were summarized and presented in a poster at the North Central American Phytopathological Society meeting and used to develop a SCN management fact sheet. The fact sheet was distributed to all states involved in this project and used at many field days in the region.

Project Objectives

1. Establish large scale on-farm demonstration plots in twelve north-central states and Ontario.
2. Compare performance of soybean varieties containing the major SCN resistance genes.
3. Compile the information into annual updates and fact sheets.
