Annual Crop Producers Meeting 2016 – Recordings streaming now
MISSED THE CONFERENCE?
RECORDED PLAYBACKS BELOW
We were pleased to cooperate with Jim Martindale of Soil Regeneration Unlimited to offer this virtual conference in January, 2016. Listen to renowned scientists, leading crop consultants, and cutting edge crop producers explain why some of the most widely adopted biotech innovations have failed to create the higher yields, increased profits, or healthier crops and soils they claim to support. Explore new insights that are empowering growers to assess and restore soil health, build sustainable farms, and harvest more nutritious crops.
All Sessions are free to view – just click on the “Blue Highlighted” links below.

AGROCHEMICALS IN THE FOOD CHAIN
Monica Krüger, Veterinary Faculty, University of Leipzig, as interpreted by Jim Martindale, Mary Lucero, and Frank Dean, “Reasons of Interest in Glyphosate Activity in Dairy Cow Farms” (Note: Due to some last minute interruptions, Dr. Monica Kruger, University of Leipzig, could not join this session. In the live recording, you will hear conference participants interpret the slide show she offered, and attempt to fill in the blanks on the fly. With all due respect, this could be what gets labeled be our “bloopers” session. It did provide some great opportunity for all of us to think beyond our comfort zones, and we hope we did no disservice to Dr. Kruger’s research.)

Dear Friends of Curse Buster,
Involvement of the Martindale family in the daily activities to build the CurseBuster machines has been greatly reduced since most of us moved back to China in July 2015. We are actively seeking a partnership with a US or Canada based company to play the major role in manufacturing the product. Rite-Way Mfg. Co. of Imperial, SK Canada has agreed to build a test run of up to 6 machines for 2017 spring delivery. We are actively soliciting orders to take advantage of their willingness to help. If you are not currently on our mailing list and would like to know more about prices and other machine information please contact us from the contact page on this website. Thank you.
At this point, Carl Brubacher and myself are responsible for all sales and support activities.
Our parts inventory is currently stored at Troyer Brothers, Inc. in Decatur, Indiana.
