MIDDLEFIELD, Ohio - Internationally recognized speaker and founder-CEO of Advancing Eco Agriculture, John Kempf will host a regenerative farming forum at AEA's Winter Meeting on Jan. 30, at Carlisle Inn in Walnut Creek, Ohio.
The forum will be a full-day session which will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Kempf will discuss the concepts of a regenerative approach to farming and outline a framework of agricultural possibilities and opportunities.
He will also address the difference between healthy and unhealthy plants, provide a model for growing high quality crops resistant to insect pests and disease, and share solutions to common challenges including Corn Rootworm and Spotted Wing Drosophila Fly.
Kempf maintains that higher-quality crops free of chemical pesticides pass their healthy immunity on to consumers, producing higher-quality food and greater yields for all living things. AEA's systems generate dramatic improvements in both quantity and quality, including crop yields of 10-30 percent over conventional farming and increased nutrient density of 40-50 percent or more across many different crops. In addition, AEA consistently increases the shelf life of fruits and vegetables by as much as 50-60 percent.
Those interested in attending the AEA's Winter Meeting may call (800) 495-6603 to register. Registration includes lunch and is free until Sunday and $90 thereafter.
For more information on Kempf and his approach to agriculture, the AEA blog, http://www.advancingecoag.com/blog.php> expounds upon the many opportunities he sees in agriculture and food production to increase quality, shelf life and marketable yields, based on regenerative farming concepts that have been well-documented and validated in the field.
