MU Plant Pathologist: Scout For Soybean Cyst Nematodes During October

The coalition urging farmers to watch out for a common pest is declaring October as SCN Action Month.  The SCN Coalition, formed to deal with the spread of soybean cyst nematodes, is calling on farmers to scout their fields for the yield-sapping pest.  Dr Mandy Bish runs the SCN Diagnostic Clinic at the University of Missouri and explains why October is the ideal month to test for SCN.

Bish adds that during October, farmers can have the cost of testing some of their samples covered.
