SCN-Resistant Soybean Varieties - 10/21/2011

Growing soybean varieties with resistance to the soybean cyst nematode (SCN) is an excellent way to manage this pervasive and serious soybean pest. Growers have hundreds of SCN-resistant soybean varieties from which to pick. To help Iowa growers sort through all of the possibilities, Iowa State University Extension personnel annually compile a list of SCN-resistant soybean varieties in late maturity group 0 and maturity groups 1, 2, and 3 in ISU Extension publication PM 1649, “Soybean cyst nematode-resistant soybean varieties for Iowa.” This work is supported by soybean checkoff funds from the Iowa Soybean Association.
