Description A field of cotton was split into two sections. Section 1 (35.01 acres) was treated with 32 ounces (1 quart) of product X per acre on June 23. Section 2 (13.60 acres), was treated with 32 ounces (1 quart) of BREAKOUT® on June 23 also. Both sections 1 and 2 were treated on July 7 with 32 ounces (1 quart) of product X. Both sections were picked on October 26 and yield (both lint and seed) was compared. Results Section 2 (13.60 acres) using HUMA GRO® BREAKOUT® yielded 191 lbs more lint per acre and 513 lbs of additional seed per acre - a 15% lint yield increase over Section 1. Also, the turnout was 34.4% for Section 1 and 34.7% for Section 2 with BREAKOUT®. Director's Corner: BHN Growth and Safety Measures Frank Pidgeon - BHN Director of Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) Things change, nothing stays the same for long and this fact is true when transitioning from a small business to a medium/large sized business. Change can be difficult and it's only normal as human beings to have an aversion to change, regardless if the change is positive or not. Some of the changes we are seeing is in how we view and approach safety. As production and operational demands increase so does the need to re-evaluate how we view and approach safety issues. With the growth we are experiencing, safety must also keep pace and be integrated into all facets of our operations. This is why Bio Huma Netics Inc. (BHN) has developed specific EHS policies, procedures, regulatory programs and plans, safety reference manuals and training to manage and integrate EHS into all aspects of our operations. However, to fully integrate safety the most important change is re-thinking our safety mindset and culture; a positive "safety first" mindset and culture is the foundation of any successful safety program. When it comes to our mindset we need to elevate safety to be first and foremost in our minds. When it comes to our safety culture, we need to foster and encourage a culture of "safety first" within ourselves and within our co-workers at all times. In my 24 years in the EHS profession, I can attest to the fact the most difficult safety challenge in any organization is to cultivate the "safety first" culture and mindset. It is a challenging task but not impossible. Think of cultivating a "safety first" mindset and culture like cultivating crops; with the proper foundation and nurturing from all levels, we can cultivate a strong "safety first" mindset and culture throughout our organization. The road to safety is not always an easy one but it is a journey worth traveling. The safety of each BHN employee, our neighbors, our distributors and end users is too important to not fully embrace and put into practice a "safety first" mindset and culture. The bottom line is that change is not easy, but a "safety first" mindset and culture is a change we can and must all live with!
