Assessing the Impact of Cover Crops on SCN Populations in Field Conditions

Pest Management Assessing the Impact of Cover Crops on SCN Populations in Field Conditions This project is using five established cover crop fields throughout Illinois to determine how different types of cover crops affect soybean cyst nematode (SCN) populations. Insights will be used to provide the state’s soybean farmers with improved management recommendations. View overview pdf Project Information How do different cover crops impact SCN populations? Could certain cover crops be used to suppress SCN populations? Statewide with emphasis on Southern Illinois There [...]

Impact of Cover Crops on SCN

As cover crops gain popularity in crop rotations, the question arises: Do they aid or potentially host soybean cyst nematode (SCN)? Dr. Mandy Bish from the University of Missouri Extension examines strip-trial data, particularly regarding cereal rye, which shows no significant enhancement of SCN populations. However, the impact of legume cover crops on SCN remains an area of concern.
