2018 Midwest Cover Crops Council Annual Meeting
March 13 - 14 2018, 1:15 PM - 1:15 PM
Hilton Garden Inn | Fargo, ND
The Midwest Cover Crops Council (mccc.msu.edu/)Annual Meeting is coming to Fargo, N.D., on March 13-14, 2018. The MCCC is a regional organization that engages researchers, educators and farmers using cover crops in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Ontario. This meeting is an excellent opportunity to share science-based and practical information that is being applied on-farm across the region.
What's on the agenda? In this two-day conference, attendees will get cover crop updates from each state/province involved in the MCCC along with updates from partnering organizations.
Breakout sessions will touch on soil health topics like mycorrhizae and water movement, grazing, inter-cropping, inter-seeding, disease and weed management, nutrient cycling and economics in systems where cover crops are used. Experts from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research Service, Iowa State University, Kansas State University, University of Manitoba, University of Minnesota, University of Missouri, North Dakota State University, Purdue and South Dakota State University will be in attendance. Information presented will be science-based with practical applications on-farm.
Breakout sessions will be followed by small group discussions with each of the presenters to provide attendees opportunities to have questions answered and go more in-depth on various topics. Social events and sit down lunches will encourage networking with other attendees and presenters throughout both days.
