If you have fields that are:

  1. Currently in soybeans
  2. Will be soybeans next year
  3. In longer cropping rotations that included soybeans in the last 3 years
  4. Cover crops in rotation with soybean

These may be sent in to the Arkansas Nematode Diagnostic Lab for FREE this year thanks to ongoing support from the Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board.

We will accept samples from county agents, consultants, or growers.

There is no limit to the number of samples you can send in.

All samples should be entered through our DDDI On-line sample submission program.

Be sure and provide crop information so we know it is part of the free program.

This will be our standard vermiform and cyst egg count report for soybean. If you are interested in soybean cyst race testing be sure and write this on the form as this is by request only.

If you need help on how to take and handle nematode samples or the DDDI process, you may take our online course here.

For other information regarding this process or any other nematode question, contact our Lab 870-777-9702 ext 128, choward@uaex.edu Cathy, or agreer@uaex.edu Amanda
