2015 Soybean Cyst Nematode Sampling Program (09/10/15)

The NDSU Extension Service and the North Dakota Soybean Council are working together to coordinate a SCN soil testing reimbursement program again in 2015.

2015 Soybean Cyst Nematode Sampling Program

The NDSU Extension Service and the North Dakota Soybean Council are working together to coordinate a SCN soil testing reimbursement program again in 2015. 

The North Dakota Soybean Council (NDSC) has agreed to fund 2,000 SCN soil test bags on a first come first serve basis.  Growers can pick up SCN soil test bags and an instruction sheet at NDSU County Extension offices or several SCN field days.  Sample fields, fill out the submission sheet and send the bag into the lab.  You will receive your data in the mail and the NDSC will cover the bill.     

Just like in 2013 and 2014, NDSU will use egg levels and geospatial positions of samples to create a map of SCN in North Dakota (Figure 1).  Importantly, NDSU does not have access to any personal information – just the egg level and geospatial data to generate a map.
