With harvest essentially complete, you may want to consider getting your fields sampled for soybean cyst nematode (SCN) if you have never sampled them or if it has been a while; especially if yields maybe lower than expected or if you have areas in fields that have spots that yielded poorly. These could be hot spots for SCN. It would be good to definitely sample these areas of the field. Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS), a disease that lives in the soil also showed up in some fields this year. There is a very close relationship between SDS and SCN.
