The ability of soybean cyst nematodes (SCN. Heterodera glycines) to lay dormant as eggs within a cyst for up to 11 years, has made this parasite a principal target for soybean crop pest management. Research on SCN hatching will improve understanding of SCN biology will uncover new mechanisms for their control. This poster summarizes three experiments using hatching stimulants, soybean root exudate (SRE) zinc chloride, testing whether it affects post hatch development.
