Brief Project Summary:

In the U.S., estimated annual yield losses attributed to SCN range between 15 and 30% worth between $100 million and more than $1 billion. Soybean farmers in Minnesota can benefit from more research investigating strategies to manage and reduce the spread of SCN. Using cover crops to manage SCN can be one more tool for the integrated management of SCN. The main objective of this research is to determine the effect of brown mustard and winter camelina planted after wheat and before soybean on SCN population. The research will be conducted at two western Minnesota sites infested with SCN, Borup (on-farm) and the Northwest Research and Outreach Center in Crookston. Brown mustard cv. Kodiak...
