The objective of the meeting is to provide agribusiness representatives with information about the Coalition and procedures for soybean cyst nematode resistance management in preparation for the 2019 sales and growing seasons. Soil health in relation to nematodes will also be covered. The keynote speaker, Albert Tenuta of the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, works closely with agribusinesses. Details about the Coalition can be found at the Soybean Cyst Nematode Coalition website.
Soybean cyst nematode is recognized as a key limiting factor in Michigan soybean production and local nematode populations are becoming highly aggressive. As a result, a national Soybean Cyst Nematode Resistance Management Coalition has been launched to provide information about resistance management. The Coalition consists of more than 30 agribusiness, grower organization and state partners.
Registration for the Nematology Workshop is $45 for MABA members and $65 for MABA Non-members. Please register using the link below!
