I think it is high time that I write to inform you about my Ph.D. research at Iowa State University where I studied the impact of cover crops on the soybean cyst nematode (SCN). 

When I started my Ph.D. at Iowa State in 2015, the topic of cover crops and SCN was *fire emoji* hot! And when offered the opportunity to make this research question my topic of interest, I hopped on it. I’ll share here not only my research findings but also a bit about what other past research has found on the subject.
