SCN Management Recommendations

If you suspect an SCN infestation:

  • Submit a soil sample and/or plant sample (with roots and surrounding soil included) to the WVU Nematode Diagnostic Lab.
  • Collect a pint to a quart of soil (selected from random locations across a field, or from suspected hot spots) in a plastic bag.
  • Include grower's name, mailing address, telephone and e-mail, crop and variety, and the location of the field (county and street address).
