Semi-dwarf corn and SCN breeding efforts

Moderator: Liz Stahl, Extension educator - crops

Join Drs. Rex Bernardo, UMN maize breeder, and Aaron Lorenz, UMN soybean breeder, as we discuss  U of MN research on semi-dwarf corn and the advantages this corn might provide. Breeding efforts around soybean cyst nematode (SCN), a major yield robber in soybean, will also be discussed as field populations of SCN adapt to our current tools.
