“It can be difficult to correctly diagnose nematodes, and even when they are diagnosed, they can cause irreversible damage,” Marc Hennen, Seedcare product lead at Syngenta, said. “We’ve designed this online tutorial as an educational tool to help growers better understand nematodes and the steps they can take to protect their crops against these damaging pests. Syngenta is committed to providing seed treatments and technologies that will help farmers grow more corn.”
