Renewable Farming

Dec. 10-11: Free seminar focusing on profitable “Farming for Future Generations”

This  winter’s crop production seminar offered by BRT Ag&Turf introduces a whole new dimension: A morning session devoted to safe, pure and abundant water for your family, your farm and future generations.  That will be the focus of presenters from the Blue Planet Groupe, a dedicated core of innovators who realize that water is fast becoming the primal problem in global agriculture. Our longtime friend Vatché Keuftedjian of Pursanova Liquid Conversion Technologies will also explain why two natural structuring and energizing systems “are a winner;” the Pursalex tube structuring system and the Pursanova Disk in sequence.

A few days ago we visited with a key member of this Blue Planet Groupe venture, Merlin Yockstick, a longtime educator and specialist in water structuring/energizing. 

Dr. Don Huber

Also on the program are new, updated presentations from the seasoned pros in Midwest crop production, such as Dr. Don Huber, Dr. George Kindness and crop consultant Bob Streit. Keith Schlapkohl advises us that the “dean” of Iowa crop consultants will be there:  Dr. Michael McNeill of Algona, Iowa.

The Renewable Farming team will bring you our latest yield results from 2015 field trials. That will include updates on one of the most exciting ag growth promotants we’ve tested since 2008: Lignition. It could be available to farmers for production use in 2016.  We will also report on field trials with a bio-nutrient, Symbiosis AGx, developed by Dan Pavich in Indiana.
