BHN recebe prêmio de impacto na indústria de bioestimulante 2019

Bio Huma Netics, Inc. (BHN), localizada em Gilbert, Arizona, é a vencedora do Prêmio de Impacto na Indústria de Bioestimulantes de 2019. O prêmio foi entregue no Biostimulant CommerceCon em Atlantic City, New Jersey, pela AgriBusiness Global e pela sua empresa-mãe, a Meister Media Worldwide. Este prestigiado prêmio anual é atribuído à empresa que um painel julgou como a melhor forma de alavancar a inovação em produtos bioestimulantes, implementou com sucesso uma estratégia de distribuição e implementou uma campanha de marketing e comunicação de mudança. O prêmio atribuído inclui um pacote de mídia integrado avaliado em $25.000 USD.

“Temos o prazer de apresentar o AgriBusiness Global Industry Impact Award à Bio Huma Netics”, disse Eric Davis, director-geral do AgriBusiness Group, Meister Media Worldwide. “A empresa tem demonstrado uma dedicação aos três pilares em que se baseia o prêmio – e estamos orgulhosos de utilizar a nossa plataforma para reconhecer a mudança positiva que a sua empresa tem feito no segmento de produtos e na agricultura como um todo”.

O prêmio foi atribuído à BHN em reconhecimento do seu desenvolvimento e utilização da Tecnologia de Micro Carbono® (TMC), uma mistura proprietária de moléculas extremamente pequenas, ricas em carbono orgânico e oxigénio. Estas moléculas atuam como fonte de carbono e fornecem um veículo ultra-eficiente para mover nutrientes e outras moléculas para as plantas através do solo e/ou das folhas e para utilização por microrganismos necessários para solos férteis e para a biorremediação do solo e da água. A TMC é utilizada nas linhas de produtos Huma Gro® (nutrição e proteção de culturas agrícolas convencionais), Fertilgold® Organics (nutrição e proteção de culturas agrícolas orgânicas), Huma Gro® Turf (horticultura, gramados e plantas ornamentais) e Probiotic Solutions® (biorremediação de solos e águas residuais) da empresa.

Quando foi notificado que a BHN tinha ganho o prêmio, Lyndon Smith, CEO da BHN, disse: “Na ocasião, eu estava no México. Deixei sair um grito, fiquei tão surpreendido”. Estamos aqui desde 1973 quando o meu pai, que era um fisiologista de plantas com doutorado, ajudou a fundar a empresa. Aqui estamos 46 anos depois e é bom receber esse reconhecimento e reconhecer que ele estava muito à frente do seu tempo em termos da tecnologia que foi desenvolvida. Agora vendemos produtos com a Tecnologia de Micro Carbono® (TMC), muito eficientes em 34 outros países em todo o mundo. Isto permitiu-nos ter um impacto nos agricultores, nos seus clientes e no teor em nutrientes dos alimentos consumidos por muitos milhares de pessoas. Conseguimos também ajudar a fornecer água limpa em muitos países através dos nossos esforços de biorremediação das águas residuais. Acreditamos que estamos a dar uma contribuição significativa para melhorar a qualidade de vida no nosso planeta, e continuaremos a fazê-lo de forma multifacetada e extensiva”.

EARTH DAY 2020: Celebrating 50 Years

Fifty years ago today, on April 22, 1970, 20 million Americans took to the streets to protest environmental destruction and to celebrate the wonders of Planet Earth. The basic message was that we had to find new ways to live our lives, raise our food, and conduct our businesses that were environmentally friendly and sustainable—that would not waste resources or pollute the air, the water, or the soil.

In 1973 Bio Huma Netics was formed to provide earth-friendly agricultural products and soil and wastewater bioremediation products. Our Huma Gro® crop fertilizers and protection products were less harsh and more efficient so that soils could improve and fertilizers would not be leached into groundwater, lakes, and rivers. Our Huma Gro® Turf products offered similar earth-friendly solutions for golf courses and other recreation areas. Our Probiotic Solutions® products were created to clean up contaminated soils and water—particularly the wastewater from cities and industry.

In 2018 we created a fully organic agriculture fertilizer line, Fertilgold® Organics, that captured the effectiveness of our Huma Gro® products while using even more earth-friendly ingredients.

On April 22, celebrate with us by doing something good for Planet Earth. There are still enormous environmental challenges ahead, but there are also great opportunities. Plant a tree, grow some vegetables, pick up some trash, conserve water—do whatever you can to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this important movement. Make your little corner of the planet a better place for everyone!

Huma Gro®, Huma Gro® Turf, Probiotic Solutions®, and Fertilgold® Organics: Effective, Versatile, Sustainable, and Clean.

Our Humic Advantage

Humic substances, among the most wondrous products of nature, are the recycled essential residues of life. Plants harvest the sun’s energy and create life from that energy plus the carbon and oxygen they pull out of the air and the minerals they pull out of the soil. When plants die, all of their components are decomposed through the aid of microorganisms and mineralization, then returned to the soil as organic matter. [Read more…]
