Huma Gro’s unique proprietary process creates our advanced fertilizers by creating Aromatic Acids in our products. Most fertilizers have Humic or Fulvic Acids that are much bigger than Aromatic Acids. The size of the Aromatic Acids allows for quicker uptake by plants and a more effective fertilizer overall. Below are some Questions and Answers about Huma Gro’s Aromatic Acids found in the fertilizers:

Are there many types of Aromatic acids (AROMATIC ACIDS)?

Yes, there are many types of aromatic acids.  Technically speaking, aromatic acids are a family or grouping of short chained organic acids that have an alcohol group (OH) molecule attached.

Do all Aromatic Acids have a 100% carbon base like HUMA GRO, 6 carbon atoms on each ring or are there other types of AROMATIC ACIDS that have less than 6 carbon atoms on each ring?

No, there are some aromatic acids that are not benzene ring based, but may have some carbon atoms in them.  By definition, a benzene ring contains the 6 carbon atoms in the ring.  We know that ours is benzene ring based.

Is HUMA GRO AROMATIC ACIDS the only type that has a 100% carbon base, what makes it different than other AROMATIC ACIDS?

Ours is 100% carbon based in the benzene ring configuration.  If there is someone else claiming an aromatic acid, we should ask them how they define their type of aromatic acid.  We have not heard of anyone claiming this small type of carbon based molecular carrier, but if you do we would like to hear about it also.

Do all other AROMATIC ACIDS have a 6-18 Benzene ring chain?

Not necessarily are they benzene ring based nor are they 100% carbon based.

If I ask why HUMA GRO has AROMATIC ACIDS that have a 6-18 Benzene ring chain, would that be due to fabrication process or is there another way to explain this to my clients?

We would answer that we have a unique source of highly oxidized carbon based material that is called “leonardite” and that we use a unique production process to refine the organic acid into this short chain benzene ring molecule.  It is both a unique source as well as a unique process.

If so are all our AROMATIC ACIDS chains 100% carbon based?

Yes!  As explained above.

What are the specific and UNIQUE traits that HUMA GRO AROMATIC ACIDS have over any other AROMATIC ACIDS on the market?

We do not know of any other pure carbon based (benzene ring) aromatic acid on the market.  Again if you hear of one, we would like to know about it so that we can do a comparison.  The technology just simply is not there in the conventional world to do what we do.

Below is the effects of a Huma Gro program on Peas that were grown for Seed in Washington State:

The attached pictures are of the pea field where fertility was done from a soil sample so there was nothing real special there. The in furrow enhancement program was what made the yield incredible. The program was 2 quarts of the 1-19-0 starter that Huma Gro made and 2 ounces of HolmesENVIRO Enhand biological inoculant. This was put together in enough water to do a 5 gpa application in furrow on top of the seed. The average yield expectancy is 1,200 pounds per acre and the grower had a yield of  3,200 pounds after the first scalping.

The other factor to remember is that this field received no rain or irrigations from the time of the earliest pictures till harvest. The program not only works but can be very adaptable to many other crops.

The first picture on the right is of the Huma Gro treated Pea Roots close up. The picture on the left  is of the Peas with the Huma Gro program two weeks after planting. The last picutre is of the Peas with the Huma Gro program one month after planting.

Here are some pictures of the effects of Vitol and Micro F on Barley in Washington State:

The attached pictures are from the stress relief trial this year(2009) on barley. The treatment was 1 quart of Vitol with 1 pint of Micro F. The thinking was to use the high concentration of salysidic acid in the Micro F to trigger the plants SAR resistance. This is non-irrigated barley with no rain fall. Timing of application was at jointing just prior to boot stage.

Directly below the untreated Barley is on the left, the treated on the right. In the lower picture with the barley in the man’s hand the treated is on the left side, untreated on the right.

Here is news from our Distributor in China. A large Fertilizer Company has been doing trials on X-Tend and comparing them with two other Fertilizers to find what would work best for their company. As you can read below X-Tend fared very favorably against the competition:

“Small scale testing by a large fertilizer company in China has been done and repeated to find a fertilizer additive they will use large scale on their major crops. The major parameters they are evaluating are:

–       the rate of emergence

–       stem length

–       stem diameter

–       leaf color

Huma Gro X-Tend, Agritain and CP40  preliminarily all show similar results and all three show much better response than the control. The company that is running the trial has a capacity of 600,000 tons of high quality dry fertilizer in a year.  This is why it is necessary to do a large scale test to confirm the results in different types of soil for their three major crops of rice, corn, and beans.

For X-Tend the advantages shown over the other two products are the following three:

1: No chemical residue in the soil and no toxicity. Agritain has a low toxic residue that is stable in the soil for tens of years.

2. X-Tend has results in both N and P stabilization and preservation which makes it more versatile. Agritain only has results on N.

3. CP40 is actually a hormone, so both CP40 and Agritain do not have any positive impact on the soil itself, but X-Tend will improve the soil microbial and physical properties.

In a larger testing protocol, the only evaluating parameter is yield.  Even if the final results are the same or similar for the three mentioned additives, they will chose X-Tend over the others on the basis of the above three advantages.

As of now, even without the final testing results, one fertilizer company is very willing to put X-Tend into production in one of their manufacturing lines that produces 100,000 tons of urea (their total annual production is 600,000 tons) because of the positive effects and advantages that X-Tend shows. After many trials, the rate that they think is best is 4 liters per metric ton.  This rate is the approximate equivalent to 1 gallon per 1 US ton.”
