July Workshops Offer Comprehensive Corn Nematode and SCN Training

By Greg Tylka, Department of Plant Pathologist

Plant-parasitic nematodes can be a major yield-limiting factor in Midwest corn and soybean production.  Iowa State University will be conducting two all-day workshops on the biology, scouting, and management of corn nematodes and the soybean cyst nematode (SCN).

The workshops are being held July 29 and July 30 and will be taught by ISU scientists Thomas Baum, Palle Pedersen and Greg Tylka.
