The soybean cyst nematode (SCN) reduces soybean yields in every field that it infests. And yield losses can exceed 50 percent when nematode numbers are high and the weather during the growing season is hot and dry. Management of SCN primarily consists of growing nonhost crops, such as corn, in rotation with resistant soybean varieties and using nematode-protectant seed treatments.
