The Syngenta Field Report features information and experts from Syngenta sharing observations about issues growers are dealing with in the fields.
Soybean cyst nematodes (SCN) have been difficult to manage in soybean fields across the country. Under optimum conditions, these tiny pests complete their life cycle in 24 to 30 days, infecting soybean roots and reducing crop yield.
Nematode protection helps most when SCN pressure has been observed in the field in the past, and when early-season stress, like low moisture, is combined with nematode feeding. Are you planning to provide SCN protection for your 2011 soybean crop?
