The primary method of managing yield loss due to the soybean cyst nematode (SCN) is through the use of resistant soybean varieties. Most SCN-resistant varieties available in Iowa have the PI 88788 source of SCN resistance. There are concerns that over time, SCN will be able to overcome the PI 88788 resistance.
