BHN obtuvo la autorización para importar fertilizantes en Brasil

Se ha otorgado una licencia de importación ilimitada a Bio Huma Netics, Inc., productor de la línea de protección y nutrición líquida de cultivos orgánicos Huma Gro® y Fertilgold®, para que ingrese fertilizantes a Brasil para su venta comercial.

Brasil es uno de los 4 productores agrícolas más importantes del mundo, uno de los mayores exportadores agrícolas y uno de los consumidores de fertilizantes más grandes. Durante el año pasado, BHN operó con una licencia de importación limitada, que le permitía ingresar pequeñas cantidades de productos para que los productores probaran como anticipo de ventas futuras.

Justin Smith, Vicepresidente Ejecutivo de Ventas de BHN afirmó: “Es una oportunidad increíble para nosotros, para la que hemos trabajado durante más de 2 años. El sector de fertilizantes de Brasil está creciendo rápidamente y están particularmente interesados en productos fertilizantes tecnológicamente avanzados como los nuestros.  Nuestro personal de ventas y operaciones locales es excelente y está muy bien conectado con la industria agrícola brasilera. Este es el momento perfecto para presentar nuestra línea de fertilizantes líquidos Huma Gro® con Tecnología Micro Carbono® y no pasará mucho tiempo antes de que también presentemos nuestra línea de productos orgánicos Fertilgold®. Calculamos un ingreso estimado por ventas de entre $4 y 5 millones para el primer año y podría crecer mucho más”.

Actualmente, BHN tiene 20 productos de protección y nutrición líquida de cultivos Huma Gro® registrados para vender en Brasil y comenzará a enviarlos inmediatamente. Los productos registrados se encuentran en las categorías de macronutrientes, micronutrientes, reguladores del crecimiento, fertilizantes para el suelo, ácidos orgánicos y biopesticidas. Se prevé que se registrarán más productos en el futuro. Para obtener más información sobre los productos Huma Gro® visite  http://www.humagro.com/.

El programa Huma Gro® aumenta la producción de fresas un 14 %, con un retorno de la inversión superior a $2.500/acre

Realizado por: Holden Research and Consulting
Productos Huma Gro®: Promax®, Zap®, Vitol®, Breakout®, Calcium, Lucky 7®

Este ensayo de campo evaluó los efectos de PROMAX® y ZAP® además de la fumigación (más otras aplicaciones foliares de 4 productos fertilizantes Huma Gro®) sobre la producción de fresas Portola, en comparación con el programa de nutrición de cultivos estándar de la productora.

Según los datos recopilados en este ensayo, los dos programas de tratamiento con productos Huma Gro® dieron como resultado mayores producciones y un mayor porcentaje de producción comercializable. El Tratamiento 3 dio como resultado un aumento total de la producción del 14 % por sobre el estándar de la productora. Este aumento de la producción correspondiente al Tratamiento 3 dio como resultado un aumento en las ganancias del campo de casi $3.500 más por acre, un aumento del 15 % en dólares de ganancias para el campo (ver Figura 3). Restando el costo de los productos Huma Gro® adicionales aplicados para alcanzar este aumento en la producción, se estimó que el retorno de la inversión (ROI, por sus siglas en inglés) fue superior a $2.500/acre (289 %).

Huma Gro® Program Increases Strawberry Yields 14%, With an ROI > $2,500/acre

Conducted by: Holden Research and Consulting
Huma Gro® Products: Promax®, Zap®, Vitol®, Breakout®, Calcium, Lucky 7®

This field trial assessed the effects of PROMAX® and ZAP® on top of fumigation—plus additional foliar applications of 4 Huma Gro® fertilizer products—on the yield of Portola strawberries when compared with the grower’s standard crop nutrition program.

Based on the data collected in this trial, the 2 Huma Gro® treatment programs resulted in both higher yields and a higher percentage of marketable yield. Treatment 3 resulted in an overall yield increase of 14% over the Grower Standard. This yield increase for Treatment 3 resulted in a return-to-the-farm increase of almost $3,500 more per acre, a 15% increase in dollars back to the farm (see Figure 3). Factoring in the cost of the additional Huma Gro® products applied to achieve this yield increase, the return on investment (ROI) was calculated to be over $2,500/acre (289%).

BHN Approved to Import Fertilizers to Brazil

Bio Huma Netics, Inc., producer of Huma Gro® and Fertilgold® Organics liquid crop nutrition and protection products, has been granted an unlimited import license to bring fertilizers into Brazil for commercial sale.

Brazil is one of the top 4 agricultural producers in the world, one of the largest agricultural exporters, and one of the largest consumers of fertilizers. BHN has been operating under a limited import license during the past year, which has allowed it to bring in small amounts of product for growers to try in anticipation of future sales.

Justin Smith, Executive Vice President of BHN Sales, said, “This is an incredible opportunity for us, one we’ve been working toward for over 2 years. Brazil’s fertilizer sector is growing rapidly, and they are particularly hungry for technologically advanced fertilizer products such as ours. We have terrific local operations and sales staff in place who are well connected throughout the Brazilian agricultural industry. This is a perfect time to introduce our Huma Gro® line of liquid fertilizers with Micro Carbon Technology®, and it won’t be too long before we also bring in our Fertilgold® Organics product line, as well. We conservatively estimate $4–$5 million in sales the first year, and it could grow much higher.”

BHN currently has 20 Huma Gro® liquid crop nutrition and protection products registered for sale in Brazil and will begin shipping immediately. Registered products are in the categories of Macronutrients, Micronutrients, Growth Managers, Soil Fertility, Organic Acids, and Biopesticides. It is anticipated that more products will be registered in the future. Additional information on Huma Gro® products is available at http://www.humagro.com/.

It All Has to Start With The Soil

The Soil Health Institute has released a 60-minute documentary, Living Soil, that captures the history — and significance — of the soil health movement.

Our soils support 95 percent of all food production, and by 2060, our soils will be asked to give us as much food as we have consumed in the last 500 years. They filter our water. They are one of our most cost-effective reservoirs for sequestering carbon. They are our foundation for biodiversity. And they are vibrantly alive, teeming with 10,000 pounds of biological life in every acre. Yet in the last 150 years, we’ve lost half of the basic building block that makes soil productive. The societal and environmental costs of soil loss and degradation in the United States alone are now estimated to be as high as $85 billion every single year.

Living Soil captures the background of the current soil health movement and its momentum, beginning with painful images of the Dust Bowl, and then transitions to personal experiences of innovative women and men who are managing their land to enhance soil health.

The film features rural and urban farmers from Maryland to California, selling everything from corn to bouquets, united by their care for the soil.

The documentary is directed by Chelsea Myers, founder of Tiny Attic, a video production company located in Columbia, Mo. that specializes in documenting real moments and real people.

World Soil Day, November 5

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations sponsors World Soil Day every December 5 to focus attention on the importance of healthy soil and the sustainable management of soil resources. Sponsored every year since 2014, this year’s theme focuses on soil pollution. Here is an excerpt from the World Soil Day Website:

“These days pollution is a worry – and soil is also affected. Soil pollution is a hidden danger that lurks beneath our feet.

“1/3 of our global soils are already degraded. Yet we risk losing more due to this hidden danger. Soil pollution can be invisible and seems far away but everyone, everywhere is affected. With a growing population expected to reach 9 billion by 2050, soil pollution is a worldwide problem which degrades our soils and poisons the food we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe. The entity of the problem is still unknown as not certain data are available on a global scale.

“Soils have a great potential to filter and buffer contaminants, degrading and attenuating the negative effects of pollutants, but this capacity is finite. Most of the pollutants originate from human activities, such as unsustainable farming practices, industrial activities and mining, untreated urban waste, and other non-environmental friendly practices. As technology evolves, scientists are able to identify previously undetected pollutants, but at the same time these technological improvements lead to new contaminants being released into the environment. In the Agenda for Sustainable Development 2030, the Sustainable Development Goals 2, 3, 12, and 15 have targets that commend direct consideration of soil resources, especially soil pollution and degradation in relation to food security.

“It is time to uncover this threatening reality. Combatting soil pollution requires us to join forces and turn determination into action. Be the solution to soil pollution.”

At Bio Huma Netics, Inc., we take soil health seriously. Visit our product Websites to find solutions for improving agricultural soil (Huma Gro® and Fertilgold® Organics) and bioremediation of contaminated soils (Probiotic Solutions®).

Hats Off to Farmers, Today and Every Day

Agriculture is one of the world’s oldest industries. In fact, many countries’ economies still depend on the agricultural industry. Today, on October 12, we recognize the hard work that goes into feeding a nation. Previously known as Old Farmers Day, National Farmers’ Day dates back to the 1800s, a time when a higher percentage of the population was involved in agriculture, with harvest festivals and events in September and October. National Farmers Day encourages Americans to thank farmers and ranchers for providing the food, clothing, fuel, and materials that we otherwise take for granted.
