Summary: This presentation will help consultants, growers, and other practitioners in the soybean production regions of the United States make decisions on the use of seed treatment products marketed for nematode management in soybean. This program reviews the commonly marked seed treatment products for soybean nematode management and overviews their active ingredients and modes of action. A summary of a current soybean checkoff funded project in the North Central Region of the U.S. is provided with 30 field trial locations from 2011. The main emphasis of this program is on soybean cyst nematode. By the end of this presentation, the practitioner should know more about seed treatments for nematode management in soybean and have a better understanding of what to expect from said treatments.
United Soybean Board (USB) farmer-leaders develop and maintain partnerships with U.S. land grant universities and U.S. ag-focused research organizations such as the Plant Management Network to increase the transfer of checkoff-funded applied and practical production research information to U.S. soybean farmers. USB neither recommends nor discourages the implementation of any advice contained herein, and is not liable for the use or misuse of the information provided.
