Soybean Nematodes

Posted by romeethredge on July 10, 2015

Nematodes can be a problem for many of our crops including soybeans. Here’s some brought in to me this week with a real problem. You can see the leaves showing the stress and nutrient deficiencies due to the impaired root system.

Now, in looking at the roots you can see the Nitrogen fixing nodules, these are good, they are stuck to the side of the root. What we don’t want to see is the root swelling and knoting that we see, too. Most of what’s toward the top are nodules and nematode damage towards the bottom.

Here my finger is behind some of the good nodules.
