A Key With Nothing To Unlock: Genetic discovery could be a major defense against soybean cyst nematode

A breakthrough in defense against a major crop pest, soybean cyst nematode.

Research at the University of Georgia found that the loss of function of a certain gene in resistant varieties can render nematodes unable to attack.
They say it is like lock and key, with the best being the key left with nothing to unlock.

The SCN Coalition encourages farmers to take advantage of this discovery to help bring down the devastating number of soybean cyst nematode populations.
