Below is an exciting announcement from Dr. Eileen Kladivko (Purdue) from the Midwest Cover Crops Council:
Fellow MCCC members,
The National No-Till Conference, held this past week in Indianapolis, awarded the MCCC with the No-Till Innovator Award for the Organization category! Accepting the award on behalf of the MCCC and the Executive Committee, were Dale Mutch and Eileen Kladivko. The beautiful framed print even included the farmer holding a copy of the Cover Crops pocket guide! The print will be displayed somewhere at our MCCC “headquarters” at KBS, where Dale Mutch and colleagues will be able to enjoy it and use it as a focal point for discussions of what MCCC is doing and what we’d like to do in the future.
Thanks to Randall Reeder from Ohio State, for taking this photo and sharing it with us.
Remember, our next annual meeting is coming up soon! Anne Verhallen will be sending details shortly, but the meeting is Thursday-Friday, Feb 28-March 1, in London, Ontario. You’ll want to travel on Wed, for the full day of talks on Thursday, and then state/province reports and some discussions on Friday. We’ll be done by 3pm on Friday March 1.

Agronomy Dept., Lilly Hall, Purdue University
Congratulations MCCC! This is an honor well deserved!
