Soybean cyst nematode (SCN) infestations continue to be a significant constraint to soybean yields in many Minnesota fields.  Shifts in SCN genetics in response to the consistent, long-term use SCN resistant varieties have complicated variety selection and crop rotation decisions.  The unusual yellowing of soybeans during the 2015 growing season is evidence of the extent of SCN issues.  As SCN management continues to increase in complexity, soybean growers and their advisors are looking to new tools to maintain soybean yield in the presence of increasing SCN populations.
