What You Should Know
NEMATODES COST AN ESTIMATED 10.2% YIELD LOSS IN CORN.
Stealing Your Corn Yields
When parasitic nematodes infect the roots of your corn, they don't just damage the plant, they rob it of nutrients and water from the inside. Because of this, they cost an estimated 10.2% yield loss in corn.

NEMATODES ARE FOUND IN CORN FIELDS — IN ALL SOIL TYPES — ACROSS THE UNITED STATES.
An Invisible And Underestimated Problem
The damage caused by nematodes often doesn't show above-ground signs. And when damage does present itself it's often mistaken as drought, malnutrition or disease. The truth is, any harm to roots can limit yield and lead to larger problems.
Common Practices Don't Always Work
Common management practices, including crop rotation, don't provide comprehensive nematode control. Some nematodes feed on multiple crops. So, even though soybeans might be a preferred host, certain nematode species can also thrive in corn.
