Humic trade association to hold conference in Sepetember

The Humic Products Trade Association (HPTA) will hold its annual meeting in Park City, Utah, Sept. 26-28, 2022.

This year’s conference will address the latest research, regulatory issues and the HPTA testing methods. The meeting will be held at the Sheraton Park City, Park City, Utah. 

HTPA Members and nonmember guests can attend the in-person presentations and tours or watch portions of the event virtually.

HPTA promotes the commercial trade of humic substances — naturally occurring substances found in organic matter — through scientific cooperation and industry regulation. 

“The humic industry has matured significantly since the trade association was founded in 2010. Humic-based products show benefit in multiple industries increasing acceptance and use,” said Russell Taylor, HPTA president. 

Humic substances are ubiquitous and exist naturally in the remains of decayed biomatter in soils and water. Highly concentrated humic deposits are found in peat, oxidized coal and shale deposits. Humic substances improve soil, maintain turf, enhance nutrition efficiency and are also used in soil and water remediation. Other industries using humic substances are also seeing increased demand, such as dietary supplements and livestock feeds. 

“The goal of the HPTA is to expand the market opportunity for humic substances in all of those areas by bringing the scientific community together and streamlining regulatory issues,” said Taylor. 

The HPTA Annual meeting includes a welcome reception Sept. 26, presentations and a dinner Sept. 27 and a farm tour at Harward Farms on Sept. 28. For meeting agenda, registration and hotel details, visit www.humictrade.org/annual22.
