While many pests threaten soybean yields, none are so devastating in the United States as the soybean cyst nematode (SCN). To keep SCN at bay, regular soil root examinations and soil assays are necessary. Once this pest sets in, there is no getting rid of it. Management practices may be taken, however, to help reduce the population.

• The effect of SCN on soybeans
• SCN’s lifecycle with a soybean host
