Annual Crop Producers Meeting 2016 – Preliminary Announcement
We here at Soil Regeneration Unlimited (aka North American ag-Gro) are pleased to announce the dates of January 18 and 19th 2016 for our Annual Producers’ Conference. Many of the details are still unavailable but we wanted to make sure to alert you to the dates asap so that you can put it on your busy calendar. We are certain that the two day event will be in Fort Wayne, Indiana, but the exact location has not been selected.
Advancing Eco-Agriculture has stepped up to assist us in the myriad of details associated with holding a two day event. So don’t be confused by directions for reservations, etc. if they appear to come from AEA.
We have been so blessed in preparation of the agenda for this first-time-ever two day event. I hasten to add that the event actually can be THREE days if you decide to take the advanced training being offered on Wednesday, January 20th by Dr. Mary Lucero from New Mexico. Visit her website to learn more.

The main objective of this year’s Conference is to explore the largely unseen world of perhaps one of the strongest forces influencing life on our planet earth. The popularized term for the subject is “microbiome”; the world of the microbe or the totality of microorganisms and their collective genetic material present in or on the human body or in another environment. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/microbiome
We are going to look at the several different microbiomes from many different perspectives, including getting them defined, assessing their condition, identifying the things which are influencing them for better or worse and lastly determining things that producers and others in the food chain can do to enhance health generally in God’s Creation, whether it’s soil, plant or animal.
As I have been studying the topic, I have begun to see the continuity so typical of our Great Creator God from place to place in His Creation. There is nothing random even at the level of the microbial world or microbiome. Principles learned about health in the plant Kingdom apply to increasing our understanding of human health as well.
Get ready to get your watch reset in the course of this Conference. I believe you will look at your soils, plants, foods, the air you breathe, and body, differently than you ever have before. For example, today, would you have a problem accepting the statement that the body that you think you have and control is close to 90% not you but instead other living organisms?
You’ve been warned!
Please consider donating to make this Conference and workshop series as affordable as possible for interested producers. Secondly, we want to give concerned citizens and businesses an opportunity to financially support the efforts of the speakers and attendees to promote and produce food and feed stuffs which are truly healthy and nutrient dense.
Dear Friends of Curse Buster:
Son Daniel and I have elected to license the Curse Buster tillage technology to the Troyer Brothers of Berne, Indiana. Many of you have visited the fabrication facility and met Mark and some of his staff in the past.
Processing all orders will ultimately move through the appropriate channels at Troyers’. Dan will be intimately involved in helping them get machine production organized and moving forward on schedules which Dan and I have already discussed with many of you.
I will be assisting with sales and educational efforts.
So here are the ways of getting in touch with us all.
Mark Troyer phone 260-589-2244 office; email is mark@Troyerbrothers.net
Daniel and Jim phone 260-918-0481 dialed from any phone to this internet based Skype phone
Thank you all for your continued interest and support, and most especially your prayers.
Jim, Dan, and Troyer Brothers
