Information from the PDDC is used by agricultural producers to increase their profitability. Pretesting for pea root potential can help canning companies avoid planting peas in fields where disease is likely. This saves canning companies the cost of planting and production in problematic fields, and prevents potential yield losses. Similarly, soybean cyst nematode (SCN) can lead to 50% (or higher) yield losses. Identification of infested fields can lead to management practices (e.g., rotation and use of resistant varieties) that can limit the impact of SCN and lead to increase soybean yields and profit for soybean growers. On the homeowner front, the PDDC most likely has its biggest impact in reducing pesticide usage by properly identifying landscape diseases and providing more integrated, less pesticide-heavy disease management strategies.
