Northern Regional Soybean Cyst Nematode Tests

The purpose of the Northern Regional Soybean Cyst Nematode (SCN) Tests is to evaluate the best experimental SCN resistant soybean lines developed by public researchers in the U. S. and Canada and to provide soybean breeders with a source of genetically diverse germplasm for continued progress in the release of well adapted, SCN resistant breeding lines and varieties. Participants are encouraged to exchange germplasm within the legal guidelines pertaining to transgenic strains.

The Northern Regional SCN Tests are made possible through a grant from the United Soybean Board. Their support and the cooperation of participating researchers are greatly appreciated.
