10:15-11:00 - Dealing with the Double Whammy of Sudden Death Syndrome and Soybean Cyst Nematode Expansion in NY
Jamie Cummings, NYS Integrated Pest Management Field Crops and Livestock Coordinator

Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS) of soybean has expanded throughout many production regions across NYS since its discovery in 2012. Given the known correlation between SDS infection and presence of the Soybean Cyst Nematode (SCN), statewide efforts were made to survey for SCN in NYS. Since its first discovery in 2016 in one field in Cayuga County, a recent 2019 SCN survey confirmed this pest in seven more fields in six additional counties. The biology, epidemiology, association and management of SDS and SCN will be discussed.

11:00-11:45 - The Biology and Ecology of Palmer amaranth and Waterhemp: what you need to know, now, to avoid problems later
Dr. Lynn Sosnoskie, Weed Biologist, Cornell School of Integrative Plant Science
Dr. Lynn Sosnoskie is a newly hired Assistant Professor of Weed Ecology and Management in Specialty Crop at Cornell University. Although her research will focus, primarily, on NY's fruit and vegetable industry, she will also be involved in documenting the distribution of herbicide resistant weeds in the state as well as characterizing their resistance profiles. Dr. Sosnoskie has spent more than a decade studying the dioecious amaranth (Palmer amaranth and waterhemp), with a specific interest on understanding how biological characteristics (such as emergence patterns, growth rate, reproductive output) affect weed management success.
