New York state farmer Klaas Martens will be one of the keynote speakers! Klaas and his wife Mary-Howell raise more than 900 acres of organic mixed grains in the Finger Lakes region of western New York. In addition to their farm, they operate an organic grain mill. The Martens are innovators in the control of weeds through mechanical means and good farm management and in obtaining optimal crop health and yield through soil fertility management.
Each day of the two-day Healthy Soil Summit program will include 3.5 hours of intensive, soil health education followed by 2 hours of Soil Innovation Hours where attendees can meet and network with our community of soil experts.
The main summit requires a registration fee, however the soil innovation hours are free to attend.
