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.

Bio Huma Netics Hosts 2016 World Conference

lyndon_bhn2016worldconfBio Huma Netics, Inc. (BHN), hosted its 2016 World Conference on October 25–28 in the cities of Mesa and Gilbert, Arizona. This edition of the biannual Conference had over 150 attendees from 20 countries representing distributors, customers, and staff from BHN’s product lines of Huma Gro®, Huma Gro® Turf, and Probiotic Solutions®.

This year’s conference featured over 30 presentations, including from such notables as Mark Killian—Director of the Arizona Department of Agriculture and member of BHN’s Board of Directors, and Dr. Mir Syedbagher— Professor Emeritus, University of Idaho. Presented on screen in both English and Spanish, BHN also offered live translations of the presentations in 7 languages that attendees could select and listen to from a smart-phone app. Many of the presentations were first-hand accounts of successful BHN product use by agriculture, turf, and wastewater treatment professionals from around the world.

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. The Alpha Synectics Laboratory staff includes 2 formulation chemists, an analytical chemist, a soil chemist, and a phycologist. According to BHN Senior Director of Research & Development Dr. Rita Abi-Ghanem, “This world-class laboratory will better enable us to maintain the consistent high quality of our products.”

The Conference also served as the official release of the Huma Gro® smart-phone app for Android. The free Huma Gro® app, available at Google Play, provides a foliar application calculator, a product document library, a product mixing guide, and the ability to save foliar application data by field. The app can also be used to contact Huma Gro® sales representatives. The iOS version will be available in 2017.

During the Conference, attendees had the opportunity to participate in some uniquely Arizona activities, including attending a Phoenix Suns basketball game, golfing at the Apache Creek Golf Course, and going on a desert Hummer & UTV tour.
