BHN Executive Vice President of Sales Justin Smith commented, “We are very excited to have Jamie representing Huma Gro® products in Northern California. Having grown up in agriculture in the northern Sacramento Valley, he has an in-depth, personal knowledge of the crops and crop production for that area, and he has an excellent understanding of the growers there and the problems they face. He also demonstrates the personal integrity and professionalism that we value at BHN. With his solid foundation in both agriculture and the sciences, he will be invaluable in helping us launch our new Fertilgold® Organics product line when it becomes available later this summer.”

Mr. Olivarez stated, “Huma Gro® is a great product line that offers sustainable solutions to many common agricultural problems, and representing these products fits right in with my personal and professional objectives. I take great pride in developing and maintaining close relationships with the growers, distributors, and other professionals that I work with and meet. I truly enjoy traveling around the state and helping clients and colleagues solve problems and become more successful.”

The Responsible Ag certifying organization was founded in 2014 to promote the public welfare by assisting agribusinesses to comply with federal environmental, health, safety, and security rules regarding the safe handling and storage of fertilizer products. Participation in the program assures community members, employees, and emergency responders that participating agribusinesses are acting responsibly.

BHN President and CEO Lyndon Smith said, “Achieving Responsible Ag certification demonstrates to our community and our customers that we are a very safe and responsible fertilizer manufacturer. We take great pride in our production processes, and we take every step available to demonstrate that our products are consistent, of high quality, and are safely and responsibly produced.” Frank Pidgeon, BHN Senior Director of EHSS/Quality Control, said, “The Responsible Ag audit was very thorough and was an excellent mechanism for ensuring that we were in full compliance with all federal fertilizer manufacturing safety and handling regulatory requirements.

Bio Huma Netics, Inc. y Mesa Verde Resources forman una alianza estratégica

Bio Huma Netics, Inc. (BHN), una empresa de Arizona que fabrica productos de las marcas Huma Gro®, Huma Gro® TurfProbiotic Solutions®, recientemente formó una alianza con Reid Enterprises LLC, que opera como Mesa Verde Resources en Nuevo México. Mesa Verde Resources es una empresa minera de sustancias húmicas que produce, fabrica y vende productos de ácidos fúlvico y húmico.

Además de acceder a una variedad más amplia de productos, los clientes de ambas empresas no notarán mayores cambios en las operaciones diarias. No habrá cambios inmediatos en el personal de ninguna de las empresas y ambas continuarán operando por separado con denominaciones distintas en el futuro cercano.

Se espera que esta alianza propicie una relación sinérgica entre las líneas de productos de agricultura, campos de golf y remediación de suelos/aguas residuales de BHN, y la línea de productos de ácidos fúlvicos y húmicos de Mesa Verde Resources tanto en el mercado nacional como internacional. Si bien hasta el momento BHN se había enfocado en una parte de las sustancias húmicas para extraer la tecnología Micro Carbon Technology® que se utiliza como base para todos sus productos líquidos, la fusión de empresas ofrecerá a sus clientes una variedad de productos secos y líquidos aún mayor, incluidas las distintas formulaciones de ácidos fúlvicos y húmicso de Mesa Verde Resources.

Durante los últimos 10 años, Bio Huma Netics ha experimentado un crecimiento promedio del 20 % anual. Gracias a la alianza con Mesa Verde, se espera que las ventas de la compañía fusionada aumenten un 30 % en 2017.

Bio Huma Netics, Inc., and Mesa Verde Resources Form Strategic Alliance

Bio Huma Netics, Inc. (BHN)—an Arizona company that produces products under the Huma Gro®, Huma Gro® Turf, and Probiotic Solutions® brands—has recently formed an alliance with Reid Enterprises LLC, which does business as Mesa Verde Resources in New Mexico. Mesa Verde Resources is a humic substance mining company that produces, manufactures, and sells humic-acid and fulvic-acid products.

Other than access to a greater range of products, customers from the two companies should see no change in day-to-day operations. There will be no immediate change in personnel at either company, and the two companies will continue to operate separately under separate names for the immediate future.

This alliance is expected to facilitate a synergistic relationship between the BHN lines of agriculture, turf, and wastewater/soil remediation products and the Mesa Verde Resources line of humic and fulvic products for both domestic and international markets. While BHN has previously focused on a fraction of humic substances to extract the Micro Carbon Technology® used as a base for all its liquid products, the combined company will now offer its customers an even greater selection of dry and liquid products that includes MVR’s various formulations of humic and fulvic acids.

Bio Huma Netics has averaged over 20% growth per year over the last 10 years. With the Mesa Verde alliance, combined company sales are expected to increase by 30% in 2017.
