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.

Course Structure

Section 1: Introduction

Section 2: Organic Agriculture

Sustainable / Organic Management Options for Major Insects and Diseases of:

Section 3: Citrus

Section 4: Grapes

Section 5: Pome Fruit

Section 6: Blueberries and Strawberries

“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.

Video: Earth Day, 2022

Over 50 years ago, 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 the early 1970s, Bio Huma Netics and Mesa Verde Humates were independently formed to provide earth-friendly agricultural products and soil and wastewater bioremediation products.

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.
