Abstract

The soybean cyst nematode (SCN), Heterodera glycines, is the main soybean (Glycine max) pest in the United States (3); in addition, root-knot nematodes (RKN), Meloidogyne spp., also cause substantial yield losses. Currently, the most feasible option for nematode management is the use of resistant soybean cultivars; however, only a few different sources of resistance to SCN have been identified and introduced in commercial cultivars (3).
