Don’t let soybean cyst nematode destroy roots and ruin yield

Silent

SCN can strike with no warning.

Data

Found in more than 30 states and with no obvious symptoms at the time of infestation, soybean cyst nematode can result in up to 30% yield loss and an estimated $1.5 billion economic loss.

Explosive

SCN has an aggressive reproductive rate.

Data

SCN populations are dynamic and can grow exponentially in a short period of time. This high reproductive capacity means growers can see as many as 3–5 generations per season.

Harmful

How SCN harms yield.

Data

Once infected, root functions are reduced and the plant may show signs of nutrient deficiency. Severe nematode infections reduce chlorophyll, giving plants a yellow appearance.
