During our Seedcare™ Showcase at the Slater, IA Grow More™ Experience site this month, we advised that growers use an integrated management program to protect crops.
Here are 5 management recommendations that together can help prevent SCN infestations:
- Sample soils: Depending on the previously planted crops, growers may want to consider sampling their soils. If planting soybeans followed by soybeans, sampling is best done immediately following harvest; however, if a grower is planting soybeans following a non-host crop such as corn or alfalfa, they can wait until after fall tillage.
- Plant SCN-resistant varieties: Growers should consider planting NK® Soybeans with built-in resistance to SCN for added protection.
- Use a seed-applied nematicide: Clariva Complete Beans® seed treatment, a combination of separately registered products, provides season-long, lethal activity against SCN and complements resistant varieties.
- Non-host crop rotation: Rotating between soybeans and non-host crops can also reduce the likelihood of SCN for future seasons.
