Soybean School: Scouting for Soybean Cyst Nematode

Episodes:

Damage from soybean cyst nematode can be minor, but once this pest is established in a field, it’s there for good. Since being confirmed in Ontario about 15 years ago, the nematode moved throughout much of the soybean growing region. Knowing the nematode pressure level in your fields is essential to minimizing damage through the use of resistant soybean varieties.

In this very rainy video, Albert Tenuta, field crop pathologist with OMAFRA, shows us what soybean cysts look like, where to find them and how to remove plants and root systems from the soil to ensure the most accurate scouting possible. As a helpful comparison, Tenuta also compares a resistant variety to a susceptible one so you’re well prepared to scout your soybean fields.
