Huma Gro® App Released for iOS Smart Phones

The Huma Gro® app for iOS smart phones has been released and is available for free at the Apple App Store. The Huma Gro® App provides a foliar application calculator for determining how much product to apply to specific crops on any size of field based on lab analysis, a continuously updated product document library, a product mixing guide, the ability to save product application data and calculations by field, and continuous news and feature updates from the Huma Gro® Website blog.

Justin Smith, Executive Vice President of Huma Gro® Sales, said, “The Huma Gro® app allows growers and distributors to always have the most up-to-date information on every Huma Gro® product (including the label, SDS, and product technical bulletin), and it is very useful in the field to be able to calculate how much product is needed to get the best yields. In addition, the app provides a way for growers and distributors to directly contact the Huma Gro® Sales Team with any questions they may have regarding Huma Gro® products and their use.”

The Huma Gro® liquid crop nutrition and protection line includes 11 Primary Macronutrient products, 16 Secondary Macronutrient and Micronutrient products, 5 Sustainable Soil Fertility products, 9 Optimal Growth Management products, 5 liquid Carbon-Rich Organic Acid products, and 2 Zero-Residue Crop Protection products—all with the ultra-efficient, proprietary Micro Carbon Technology® delivery system that allows growers and crop managers to achieve far more with much less product. Also available are 9 granular Carbon-Rich Organic Acid Products (in the Huma Burst® category). Additional information on Huma Gro® products is available at http://www.humagro.com/.

The previously released Android version of the Huma Gro® app has also been enhanced and is available at the Google Play Store.

BHN History Video

Bio Huma Netics, Inc.—the company that makes Huma Gro®, Huma Gro® Turf, and Probiotic Solutions® products—was founded under the name Sunburst Mining Company in 1973 by Dr. Jordan Smith, Don Organ, and Delworth Stout. These men discovered a unique oxidized humate that was rich in natural organic compounds and minerals in a mine in the northwestern United States. The founders developed a proprietary process to extract organic acids, valuable minerals, and other organic components from this material. This extract contains the base of Micro Carbon Technology® that is the foundational ingredient used in almost all of the more than 70 products produced by BHN.

This short video narrated by Lyndon Smith, current President/CEO of BHN and son of founder Jordan Smith, tracks the history of BHN from 1973 to the present.

Another feature of the 4-day event was the dedication of BHN’s new Alpha Synectics Laboratory facility. This major expansion of BHN’s laboratory capabilities enables BHN to move completely in-house in terms of product development & improvement, quality control & verification, carbon extraction & characterization, and bioassay & microbial studies.
