Meet Experts Face to Face
Quality of content directly correlates to the caliber of speakers – and we have some incredible presenters lined up for this soil health event. These are people with decades of experience in the field, as well as experience passing that knowledge on to fellow farmers and ranchers.
Our keynote presenter, Rick Clark, is an Indiana farmer dedicated to organic no-till practices. As a fifth generation farmer, Rick has developed and is constantly improving a systematic approach to regenerative farming, and his farm is 100% non-GMO, 100% no-till, and 100% cover crop.
Other speakers include John Kempf, a leading crop health consultant and designer of innovative soil and plant management systems, as well as the founder of Advancing Eco Agriculture, a leading crop nutrition consulting company.
Kris Nichols, an experienced scientist and teacher who previously worked at the Rodale Institute, will be presenting on drought resilience and water management tactics.
