In-depth cyst nematode clinic
Feb. 1, 9 a.m.-noon, Logan County
Extension office, Lincoln, $5
Standardizing is occurring in the
methods we use for processing soil samples to detect and count
soybean cyst nematodes. Learn what the new numbers mean.
One of the biggest changes in
diagnosing soybean cyst nematode problems and making recommendations
will be in the way we treat differences among the populations. We
always talked about SCN "races." Unfortunately, the situation in the
field is a lot more complicated. A new way of naming SCN
populations, called the HG type test, will be presented.
Dr. Terry Niblack, Extension
nematologist, and Dr. Suzanne Bissonnette, Extension IPM educator,
will present the workshop.
So, join us for this In-Depth SCN
Workshop and learn what is new and improved for soybean cyst
nematode management and detection.

of rootworm control products is important in making management
decisions for this pest. Resistance management issues are important
for larval and adult control programs.
