With soybean harvest in full swing, you may want to consider getting your fields sampled for soybean cyst nematode (SCN) after harvest, especially if you have never sampled for SCN or it has been a while. Other reasons for sampling include, yields were lower than expected or if you have areas in fields 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 has showed up in some fields over the years. There is a very close relationship between SDS and SCN.
