Elaine Ingham maintains an active schedule of classes and
webinars focused on the most up-to-date knowledge about growing
plants without pesticides or inorganic fertilizer. Ingham
consults and educates large scale commercial cotton and soybean
growers, large scale berry growers, as well as large commercial
fruit producers as well as shrimp production. Tune-In to learn
about the great things Elaine is doing for the savior
Ingham is well known for her work on the USDA soil-primer based on
a concept she coined called the “Soil Food Web.” Now, based
on her decades of pioneering work as a soil microbiologist – Ingham
has made it the objective of her company SoilFoodWeb.comto restore soil to
its optimum state, anywhere at any scale.
What most may not know is about her efforts that saved humanity and
all living planets on this planet. You see…
“In 1992 the Environmental Protection Agency was only a
few weeks away from ending life on the planet as we know it,” so
writes George Lawton in the April, 2001 issue of Acres USA (“A
Voice For Eco-Agriculture”). Lawton reports that the
EPA, although only having done limited tests at that time on a
variety of genetically engineered microbes, all of which had been
approved for release into the atmosphere, were prepared to approve
the release of a GE variant of Klepsiella planticola (KP), one of
the most common bacteria on the planet.
“This particular variety of GE KP,” he writes, “had the
unique ability to convert dead plant matter into alcohol. It was
hoped that this would provide a way for farmers to transform their
unused stalks, leaves and other types of compost material into
alcohol, which could be used for washing, running vehicles.
So, it’s worth giving a listen to our discussion to learn more
about Elaine’s focus, her interests, and her scope on a stable and
prosperous future from the ground up.
