Description

Soybean cyst nematodes (SCN) are one of the major soybean yield robbers in Iowa. It was estimated that there was more than 11 million bushels of soybeans lost due to SCN in Iowa just in 2014 (Bradley et al., 2015). The primary management of SCN is with resistant soybean varieties. In recent years there have been several nematicidal seed-treatment products introduced to the market that may provide additional protection from SCN. These products can be classified into two broad categories, chemical and biological. Avicta and ILeVO are two of the primary chemical nematicides. Clariva, VOTiVO and N-HIBIT are some of biological nematicides available on the market (Tenuta and Tenuta, 2015).
