The soybean cyst nematode (SCN) is one of the most damaging pathogens of soybeans in Iowa and throughout the United States. Fortunately, there are soybean varieties bred to be resistant to the pathogen, and farmers can help manage for SCN by growing an SCN-resistant soybean variety. These varieties tend to yield well as a result of keeping the SCN feeding and reproduction in check.
