Free SCN Testing for IL Soybean Farmers

Known as the billion-dollar pest, soybean cyst nematode (SCN) is reported to annually cost North American soybean producers $1.5 billion in lost yield. Even with such a large number, many farmers are unaware if or how SCN is impacting their soybean yield. This project aims to change that by providing free SCN soil sampling to understand presence, population and response to available varietal resistance. Learn More

University of Illinois Crop Science Variety Trials – Protein, Oil and SCN Resistance

In addition to using the SCIO CNST NIR technology on the combine to determine the protein and oil content of each tested variety, soil samples will be collected at harvest to assess population levels of soybean cyst nematode (SCN). Data will be shared with Illinois farmers through several methods, including the UI Variety Trial website. Learn More
