New Field Guide for Soybean Cyst Nematode Management Available

By Rich Pope, Department of Plant Pathology
Knowing how to recognize and manage soybean cyst nematode is the sole focus of a new pocket guide authored by Iowa State University Extension Nematologist Greg Tylka, in partnership between Iowa State University and the Iowa Soybean Association.

The 56-page pocket guide details management of soybean cyst nematode, which is the leading economic pest of soybean in Iowa. This new publication is available for Iowans at no cost from ISU Extension offices and can be ordered directly from the extension online store by ordering publication CSI 12 - Soybean Cyst Nematode Management Field Guide.
