NE Ag Expo Nematode Report Cover

Plant-parasitic nematodes are one of the biggest yield robbers of soybean in North Carolina. As a result, the Ag agents of Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Gates, Pasquotank, and Perquimans Counties teamed up to determine the type and frequency of nematode populations in Northeastern North Carolina. Samples were taken from 120 soybean fields within the 6-county area in October of 2020. Results from the study can be accessed here: 2020 Northeast Ag Expo Nematode Report.

For more information on managing nematodes in soybeans, visit the North Carolina Soybean Production Guide.

Additionally, visit the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (NCDA&CS) website for nematode forms and information.
