Proceedings of the Integrated Crop Management Conference
Iowa State University Conferences and Symposia

The Iowa State University Integrated Crop Management Conference is Iowa's premier crop production education event. No other program in Iowa brings together the diverse range of topics, slate of expert presenters and results of the latest University research.

The ICM Conference offers workshops focusing on the latest in crop production technology. Experts from Iowa and surrounding states will provide research updates and results in soil fertility, soil and water management, crop production and pest management.

Abstract

The soybean cyst nematode (SCN), Heterodera glycines, is a consistent threat to profitable soybean production in the Midwest each year. In years of adequate to excess rainfall, like 2010 in Iowa, the short-term effect of SCN on soybean yields may be reduction of only a few bushels per acre. But in hot, dry years, yield loss can approach 50 percent or more. And no matter the extent of yield loss, SCN population densities (numbers) can increase dramatically during a growing season if susceptible soybean varieties are grown. And high SCN population densities increase the chances of soybean yields being greatly reduced due to nematode damage in future years.
