New Video: Soybean Cyst Nematodes, Testing for Resistant Populations

Dr. Ann MacGuidwin- Plant Pathology Department UW Madison

An accurate profile of the types and numbers of SCN is important for explaining damage to the current crop, predicting damage to future crops, and selecting appropriate measures to keep nematode pests from reaching damaging levels. This video shows how a HG test is conducted at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The assay service identifies plant parasitic nematodes to the genus level and estimates their potential to cause yield loss.
