Mario Tenuta is the NSERC/WGRF/Fertilizer Canada Senior Industrial Research Chair in 4R Nutrient Stewardship and Professor of Applied Soil Ecology at the University of Manitoba. His training includes a B.Sc. in Botany and Physical Geography, an M.Sc. in Soil Fertility, a Ph.D. in Plant Pathology, and Post-Doctoral research in Nematology. The Applied Soil Ecology Laboratory, together with MPSG and the Province, have been conducting surveys and research to track the establishment of Soybean Cyst Nematode in Manitoba. We have found the pest in five RMs. This presentation will provide an update of results and more importantly what we do now to reduce productivity losses because of SCN.
