About Us


Mesa Verde Humates

Over the past 36 years we have grown to be the best known suppliers of humates in the world. Our headquarters and production operation are located in San Ysidro, New Mexico. Our humates are mined in the San Juan Basin in Northwest New Mexico from the Fruitland Formation.

Mesa Verde Humates® is part of the Bio Huma Netics®, Inc. (BHN) family of products.

Founded in 1973, Bio Huma Netics®, Inc., is a three-generation employee-owned company that is a global leader in empowering others through humic substances.

From company-owned mines, we produce liquid, dry, and water soluble humic and fulvic acid products, as well as our proprietary Micro Carbon Technology®.

Key to our success is the science behind our products. The BHN Research & Development (R&D) Center has 3 primary areas of responsibility: product development & improvement, product quality assurance, and humic research. For more information about the BHN R&D Center, click here.

Our products—derived from naturally occurring leonardite (soft coal) and humic shales—create enhanced activity of beneficial microorganisms, improved soil structure and water use, enhanced nutrient availability and uptake, suppression of crop pests and diseases, and breakdown of hydrocarbons and chemical compounds.

Our humic-based products have been developed for agriculture (HUMA GRO®MESA VERDE HUMATES®FERTILGOLD® ORGANICS); horticulture, turf, and ornamentals (HUMA GRO® TURF); and soil & wastewater bioremediation (PROBIOTIC SOLUTIONS®).

Our ongoing purpose is to investigate, innovate, implement, and improve the use of humic substances as true biostimulants for a better world. Learn more at www.bhn.us.
