Brief Project Summary:

The soybean cyst nematode is a major pest for soybean production. Other cyst nematodes such as sugar beet cyst nematode, clover cyst nematode and cereal cyst nematode are known to or may be present in fields in North Dakota. These nematodes are very similar to SCN in morphology. Distinction between SCN and these nematodes is difficult and time consuming based on morphology using traditional microscopic methods. Molecular techniques offer new possibilities for distinguishing cyst nematode species. The goals of this research are 1) to differentiate SCN from sugar beet cyst nematode that is known to occur in ND and other closely related cyst nematodes that may be present in ND; and 2)...

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.
