Soybean yield potential is the result of many factors: genetics, environmental conditions and management practices. Additionally, deficient nutrient levels in the soil can also affect yield. When nutrients are limited, photosynthesis, water transport, and protein, oil and carbohydrate production can be negatively affected. A simple soil test can help evaluate the deficiencies and increase yields.
Nematode feeding is often hard to detect. Often it can be misidentified as herbicide injury, soil compaction, sandy soils, and other problems. There are many things your customers can do in the growing season or shortly after harvest that can help identify and properly treat nematodes to halt their yield robbing progress.
