Corn nematodes can reduce corn yields without obvious symptoms robbing your fields of top end yield. Depending on the nematode species, feeding occurs on the surface of the roots (ectoparasite) or within the roots (endoparasite). Soil and root samples are required for determining if nematodes are present and species identification.
In this issue of SeedScoop, you can learn about the above and below-ground signs for nematode damage, estimated damage thresholds, how to sample and how to manage nematodes if you have an issue.
