CTTC Update – Masks Optional, Early Bird Registration Through March 1

Due to recent changes by the CDC with masking guidelines and the fact that the CDC COVID-19 transmission level for Hardin County has dropped, hospitalizations in the local area and in Ohio are declining, campus COVID case numbers are decreasing, and that severity continues to remain low, Ohio Northern University has indicated that masks are now optional in public indoor spaces on the ONU campus which includes the buildings that house the Conservation Tillage & Technology Conference.

As a result of these recent changes, the Conservation Tillage & Technology Conference, scheduled for March 8-9 at Ohio Northern University in Ada will extend its early bird registration rate of $100 through Tuesday, March 1. This extension of the early bird conference registration rate is reflected at the online registration site which can be found at Further information about the CTTC can be found, including the final list of topics and presenters at

In addition, information and registration for the Midwest Cover Crops Council meeting being held the day before the conference on March 7, can be found at these two websites. Although the website still mentions that masks are currently required as of writing this article, a request for updating this website has been made. If you have any questions about these changes, you can contact Randall Reeder at Anyone who wants to wear a mask will be welcome. In fact, there will be extra masks on hand, plus hand sanitizer for conference attendees for those who prefer to use it.
