Using Multispectral Platforms to Manage the Soybean Cyst Nematode

Pest Management USING MULTISPECTRAL PLATFORMS TO MANAGE THE SOYBEAN CYST NEMATODE QUESTIONS THIS PROJECT WILL ADDRESS How can we gain a better understanding of what soybean cyst nematode (SCN) is doing in a soybean field without collecting more time- and cost-intensive soil samples? How can we use technology to better detect infestation levels of SCN and help guide management decisions? Project Information SCN has earned the title of #1 soybean pathogen not just because of the economic loss it inflicts, [...]

Disease: Soil Pathogens Are a Constant Menace

And soil-borne pathogens are your nemesis. When considering all the stresses that soybeans incur during the season it is remarkable how well they do in Illinois.
