SCN causes U.S. soybean farmers $1 billion in losses each year, so it’s a good idea to take steps to protect yourself from the threat. Before planting begins is a great time to test your soil to see if you have SCN and have time to react before it becomes a problem. Farmers should also monitor their fields throughout the growing season.
