As the 2013 soybean growing season draws to the close, now would be a great time to sample for SCN. SCN sampling serves two purposes: First, to determine if SCN is present in the soil and second, to determine if the SCN population has increased or decreased for the fields already known to have SCN. That’s why we encourage soil sampling for SCN irrespective of the status of the field.
