Bill Vanderbilt was chairperson of the MACC from 2012-2016 and served on the Executive Committee since 2006. His humor, love for the community and thoughtful questions and insights will be missed. Bill demonstrated a genuine concern for MACC staff and encouraged us to look for win-win solutions.

The MACC is pleased to partner with Hope College to host public presentations of student research. Students enrolled in the Advanced Environmental Seminar work in groups throughout the semester to collect and analyze data. Students this semester are investigating salt contamination in urban streams, amounts of phosphorus in snow melt andrain events in agricultural streams and the effects of sediment on aquatic microorganisms. We hope you’ll be able to join us and learn what they have discovered!

The MACC recently hosted a recorded webinar viewing of Interseeding Cover Crops in Corn and Soybean, presented by Bill Curran, Professor of Weed Science at Penn State University. This webinar reviewed the performance and field data of the new InterSeeder Technologies, innovatively designed interseeder developed by Penn State and Cornell University. This new design allows for the interseeding of cover crops while sidedressing up to the V5 stage of corn. Next month’s viewing will take place on May 10th at 2pm at the MACC. The webinar will be presented by USDA on Integrating Warm Season Annuals into Cool Season Perennial Grazing Systems, focusing on the use of warm season annuals (cover crops), their management and tips for revitalizing old monoculture cool season pasture to improve soil health.
