Just two of the 14 speakers for the Feb. 23 and 24, 2021, event are Dr. Nicole Van Dam and John Kempf.

  • Dr. Nicole Van Dam: Van Dam is a professor at the Friedrich-Schiller University, Jena, Germany, and a researcher at the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research, Leipzig, Germany. Her research mission is to unravel the molecular and chemical mechanisms governing interactions between plants and herbivores.

  • John Kempf: Kempf is the founder of Advancing Eco Agriculture (AEA), a plant nutrition and biostimulants consulting company. He is a top expert in the field of biological and regenerative farming. Kempf founded AEA in 2006 to help fellow farmers by providing the education tools and strategies that will have a global effect on the food supply and those who are growing that supply. He is building a comprehensive systems-based approach to plant nutrition, a system solidly based on the sciences of plant physiology, mineral nutrition and soil microbiology.
