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.

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.)
