Brief 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.

Final Project Results

The United Soybean Research Retention policy will display final reports with the project once completed but working files will be purged after three years. And financial information after seven years. All pertinent information is in the final report or if you want more information, please contact the project lead at your state soybean organization or principal investigator listed on the project.
