Sampling for SCN... Part Art & Part Science!
I frequently talk about WHY we need to sample for soybean cyst nematodes or SCN. It causes more yield losses than all other soybean diseases combined. As harvest wraps up, and I realize there are a lot of you out there that are running behind on harvest, this is the time of year when the most samples are taken. This is an excellent time because hopefully things have slowed down a bit, the ground isn’t frozen yet, and you remember or you can look at your yield maps and identify those areas or fields where yields did not meet expectations.
