- Featured Keynote Speaker -
Dr. Elaine Ingham is currently Founder and President and Director of Research for Soil Foodweb Inc.,
a business that grew out of her Oregon State University research program and her research is on:
-- What organisms are present in the soil and on the foliage of your plants?
-- Which organisms benefit which types of plants?
-- Which organisms harm plants?
-- How can these organisms be managed to grow plants with the least expensive inputs into the system
while maintaining soil fertility?
Behind her user-friendly approach lies a wealth of knowledge gained from years of research into the
organisms which make up the soil food web. Her goal is to translate this knowledge into actions that
ensure a healthy food web that promotes plant growth and reduces reliance on inorganic chemicals.
Elaine also offers a pioneering vision for sustainable farming, improving our current soils to a healthier state, without damaging any other ecosystem.
