Brief Project Summary:

Planting soybean cyst nematode resistant soybean varieties is one management option to increase soybean yields in North Dakota. Growers need unbiased information on the yield of commercial varieties in soybean cyst nematode (SCN) infested fields. This project involves soliciting soybean seed from private companies for planting in SCN-infested fields. The anticipated results will allow private companies and soybean growers to compare the yield of SCN resistant cultivars and breeding lines at three North Dakota sites that are infested with SCN. This study should help North Dakota soybean growers better cope with the growing SCN problem.

Information And Results
Final Project Results

The United Soybean Research Retention policy will display final reports with the project once completed but working files will be purged after three years. And financial information after seven years. All pertinent information is in the final report or if you want more information, please contact the project lead at your state soybean organization or principal investigator listed on the project.
