Brief Project Summary:

The soybean cyst nematode (SCN) is a continuing threat to soybean production in South Dakota, especially in the eastern tier of counties and in most of the southeastern counties. This project provides continuing support for SCN testing through the Plant Diagnostic Clinic at SDSU. For twelve years soil samples received from South Dakota soybean producers were tested for SCN at no cost to the producer. In 2007, a fee of $10 was assessed for soil samples and the number of samples analyzed dropped from approximately 1,200 in 2006 to 267 in 2007.

The Council agreed that the SCN analytical service was important and agreed to fund the cost of SCN analyses for South Dakota soybean growers.

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.
