Midwest Cover Crops Council to Host Conference in Indianapolis

The Midwest Cover Crops Council (MCCC) will host its 2024 Annual Meeting and Conference at the Crowne Plaza Indianapolis-Airport on February 13-14, 2024. The MCCC is a collaboration of researchers, extension staff, farmers, agencies, and industry with the mission of facilitating the widespread adoption of cover crops across the Midwest. February 13th is the MCCC Annual Meeting, which is open to the public and will largely be State and Province reports. These reports summarize cover crop research and activities across the Midwest. The first day will conclude with a reception, including a graduate student poster competition.

The second day (Feb 14) is a typical conference program with a keynote presentation by Dr. Rob Myers, the Director of the MU Center for Regenerative Agriculture and SARE Regional Director of Extension Programs. There will also be a farmer panel and a general session by Barry Fisher, Indiana farmer and retired USDA NRCS Soil Health Specialist. Breakout sessions throughout the day include tracks on cover crop use in field crops, grazing, and specialty crops. One or two-day registrations are available. Early bird registration ends December 15.

Students are encouraged to attend with free registration and cash prizes for graduate student poster competition winners. The MCCC is still accepting exhibitors and sponsors for the conference. Details and registration are available at midwestcovercrops.org/meetings.
