Nematodes are causing North American growers to lose roughly $1.5 billion per year.

Fight back against this increasingly resistant pest with a professional understanding of Soybean Cyst Nematodes (SCN), bionematicides, nematicide treatments and more.

The Cost of Nematodes

Yields are Decreasing

SCN are increasingly able to produce large numbers of eggs despite treatment from current nematicides, making them the #1 yield-robbing pest for soybean growers.

Nematode Lifecycle

Nematode Lifecycle

They are Adapting

Soybean cyst nematodes are becoming increasingly resistant to current nematicides. They’re adapting, feeding, and reproducing at alarming rates even when treated.

The SCN lifecycle can be as short as 24 days during the growing season, which equates to roughly 3-6 generations per year.

Even if only 1% of eggs survive each generation, that can still amount to as many as 39,062 eggs after 3 generations.

SCN Has Taken Root Across the Country

As of 2020, SCN has been found in every soybean-producing state in the US, except West Virginia. They reproduce so rapidly, and have spread so far throughout the country, there’s simply no stopping them—until now.

The above maps show the known distribution of the soybean cyst nematode, Heterodera glycines, in counties and rural municipalities in the United States in 2017 and 2020.

Nematode Control from the Ground Up

Unlike other nematicides, NIMAXXA prevents nematode colonization at the roots by forming a protective biofilm against egg-hatching, juvenile survival, motility and penetration.

There’s no getting around it.

NIMAXXA is about to hit the market and provide corn and soybean growers with a whole new level of best-in-class, multi-dimensional protection from nematode losses.
