A new publication titled "Interpreting SCN Soil Sample Results" is available from Iowa State University Extension. The publication describes various details that one should consider when interpreting results of soil tests for the soybean cyst nematode (SCN). Among the topics discussed in the publication are recognizing what stages of the nematode are counted, knowing what quantity of soil was processed, understanding why results are so variable, and determining how sample results relate to management recommendations.
