A field day is scheduled for Friday August 27 to showcase ongoing applied and basic research on the soybean cyst nematode (SCN) at Iowa State University. The event, sponsored by soybean checkoff funds administered through the Iowa Soybean Promotion Board and the Iowa SCN Coalition, will be held at the ISU Bruner Research Farm, located west of Ames. The program will consist of five in-field oral presentations by ISU faculty and staff. Topics to be discussed include SCN biology and scouting; screening of SCN-resistant soybean breeding lines; the effects of SCN on soybean growth and development; the effects of herbicide-resistant soybean varieties on target and nontarget organisms, including SCN; and field evaluations of SCN-resistant soybean varieties.
