Free Soybean Cyst Test
Pest Pros Lab is tackling the “Billion Dollar Pest”. By partnering with the Wisconsin Soybean Marketing Board and the UW-Madison Extension program, we offer 4 Free SCN tests every year to every soybean grower in Wisconsin. Wisconsin growers’ soybean check-off dollars and grant money from the WSMB fund this beneficial program.
The test offers a complete soil nematode analysis to help growers make important decisions such as varietal selection and rotation schedules. Results offer population counts of the SCN eggs and other plant parasitic nematodes, as well as a risk assessment of potential yield damage based on those populations for each crop in the rotation. We offer quick results, usually coming within a week so growers can act fast on potential problems. Professional services are also available to consult on any questions.
These samples can be pulled along with spring or fall fertility samples to help make decisions like variety selection or field location. Samples can also be pulled during the growing season to troubleshoot problem areas within a field.
