The Huma Gro Farmer Podcast: Episode 4 – Soil Biology and Soil Health with Promax®

By Jael Batty

In Episode 4 of The Huma Gro Farmer podcast, we discuss Soil Biology and Soil Health with Promax®. Promax® is an OMRI-listed organic pesticide that kills soil pathogens and nematodes. Join us as we discuss crop protection with our experts, Bio Huma Netics, Inc. President and CEO Lyndon Smith, and Eastern U.S. Sales Manager and Agronomist Barrett Smith. See show notes.

Promax®: A Proven Soil Biopesticide

OMRI-Listed Huma Gro® Promax® is a soil-applied fungicide and nematicide used as a preventive and a curative agent. It is recommended for the control of many fungal diseases in the soil, as well as plant parasitic nematodes in a wide range of crops. Continue reading

Ensayo de campo: Promax® controla los nematodos de los setos ornamentales boj inglés

Granja de Investigación Experimental Kentland de Virginia Tech, McCoy, Va.

Este ensayo de dos años tuvo como objetivo evaluar los efectos eliminatorios de PROMAX® y de dos tipos de tratamientos con nematodos beneficiosos (S. feltiae y S. riobrave) en comparación con un control de nematodos parasíticos de plantas (atrofiados, de lanza, anillados y espiral) de los setos ornamentales boj inglés (Buxus sempervirens L. var. suffruticosa).

Los resultados en este ensayo demuestran que la aplicación de un tratamiento con el nematicida PROMAX® redujo los porcentajes de población de los 4 nematodos parasíticos de plantas estudiados a los 7 días y a los 30 días después del tratamiento en el 1er y en el 2do año, y PROMAX® fue más efectivo que los otros 2 tratamientos estudiados para ambos períodos. Esto indica que PROMAX® elimina los nematodos, ya que los mata por contacto.

Es posible que se deban repetir las aplicaciones para lograr la eliminación durante períodos de más de 30 días.

Field Trial: Promax® Controls Nematodes for English Boxwood

Virginia Tech Kentland Experimental Research Farm, McCoy, Va.

This two-year trial aimed to assess the suppression effects of PROMAX® and 2 types of beneficial nematode treatments (S. feltiae and S. riobrave) versus a control on plant-parasitic nematodes (Stunt, Lance, Ring, and Spiral) for English Boxwood (Buxus sempervirens L. var. suffruticosa) ornamental plants.

The results reported in this trial demonstrate that application of 1 treatment of the nematicide PROMAX® reduced population percentages of the 4 plant-parasitic nematodes studied at both 7 days and 30 days post-treatment in years 1 and 2, with PROMAX® being more effective than the other 2 treatments studied for both time periods. This is an indication that PROMAX® suppresses nematodes by killing them on contact.

Repeated applications may be required to achieve suppression for periods longer than 30 days.

Latest Edition of the BHN Newsletter, The Solution, Is Available

We love to hear stories from the people who use our products, and a number of those stories are included in this issue of The Solution. We begin with a report from Holden Research and Consulting on how use of certain Huma Gro® products on strawberries led to an ROI of over $3,400/acre. Amazing! Equally amazing is a report from Plant Sciences showing how effective Promax® is at controlling 8 strawberry pathogens. It seems that Huma Gro® and strawberries have an affinity for each other.

In our Probiotic Solutions® section we report on a case study involving a small town in New Mexico that was in need of reducing the sludge in its wastewater treatment system lagoon in order to meet state requirements. After 300 days of using Bio Energizer®, sludge was reduced to the point where the town had regained capacity to better handle the incoming flow and meet its permit requirements without dredging.

On the back page we share some videos out of Colombia, South America, from postings to the Huma Gro® groups on WhatsApp. Any story that involves a mule has got to be interesting, and the video showing hand foliar application of Breakout® on rice from San Jacinto del Cauca does not disappoint.

We also announce new Huma Gro® catalogs in English and Spanish, an updated Huma Gro® Turf catalog, and the launching of a Spanish version of our Huma Gro® blog at https://humagro.com/category/espanol/: We hope to use this blog to bring even more people into the Huma Gro® conversation.
