BHN Sponsors Online Course on Sustainable Organic Agriculture Production

To help increase awareness about sustainable agriculture production, Bio Huma Netics, Inc., (BHN) is sponsoring a FarmProgress course for Certified Crop Advisers (CCAs) and Pest Control Advisers (PCAs) in the United States and Canada.

This free online continuing education course, titled “Organic/Sustainable Agriculture Production -2022” aims to help working professionals learn about sustainable farming practices and pest management without the use of synthetic chemicals.

During the training, participants will learn about most common pests in organic/sustainable agricultural systems and current methods of controlling insect pests, weeds, and diseases in a range of organic crops grown in the United States.

The two-hour duration course is divided into ten sections and allows participants to complete it at their own pace.

“Pest management is an integral part of conventional and organic farming and requires adequate training. At times, managing pests in organic farming systems is much more challenging because of fewer options than in conventional production. By taking this course, participants can learn how to identify and combat pest infestation to minimize crop damage under organic cultural practices,” says Dr. Mojtaba Zaifnejad, Sr. Director of Field Research and Technical Services, BHN. In addition, this course provides a brief insight on how humic substances can benefit the health of soil and crops.

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.
