Soybean Cyst Nematode

Get out your soil probes and shovels and help Penn State Extension, the SCN Coalition, and the Pennsylvania Soybean Board track the Soybean Cyst Nematode. SCN may be present in a soybean field and reduce soybean yield by 10% with no visible clues, which means it can go unnoticed for several years. Free testing is being offered for Pa. soybean growers during the 2019 planting season. You can request a soil sample at your local Penn State Extension Office.
