MARYVILLE, MO (2009-01-21) Data coming from a Northwest Missouri research farm shows crop rotation can be effective when it comes to battling soybean cyst nematodes.
Producers at the Graves-Chapple farm in Albany have demonstrated high cyst numbers on the beans are significantly reduced over time when planted with continuous corn.
The experiment also used herbicides to keep the field clean of winter weeds which also contributed to reducing the pest levels.
The use of a non-host crop to test soybean cyst reduction has been ongoing for 4 planting seasons.
