While searching for a way to help his Florida citrus groves recover from declining yields, George Sims, discovered a new way to refine humic. By combining this refined carbon molecule with oxygen and hydrogen energy, he created a liquid that delivered tremendous results in his orchards.
With a strong desire to help his fellow growers, George Sims launched CarbonWorks. The company created a total of 3 unique products in the first year, each utilizing the technology he had discovered.
With 5 years of outstanding results on orchards, fruits, and vegetables, Minnesota agronomist and researcher, Nate Firle brought CarbonWorks' products to the Midwest for testing on corn and soybeans. With results equally as impressive, CarbonWorks products became available to growers in the Midwest.
Humic products are no stranger to California's agriculture. They have been around for decades. But in 2013, two new carbon products entered the fields that are unlike anything ever seen before. Beginning with the cotton fields and almond orchards of California, it's use has been expanded to over 40 crops with outstanding results!
With the evolution of CarbonWorks' technology, we further refined our products to be 8 times more concentrated than the first generation of products! Each performs as consistently as ever, while becoming even easier to use.
For 13 years, we have enabled growers to overcome challenges and push beyond the previous limits of their farms. Our one goal is to continue to help growers increase their yields and profitability. We understand the challenges facing growers, which is why we will continue to do everything we can to help you, the grower, obtain a more prosperous future.
George Sims - CEO
I grew up in southern Alabama—a region rich with peanuts and soybeans. You could say I grew up in agriculture.
After earning an engineering degree from Auburn University, I became a pilot for the United States Navy. During my career, I flew the A-4 Skyhawk off aircraft carriers.
Following my retirement from the Navy in the 1980s, I returned to agriculture. I built and managed two of the largest citrus groves in Florida, and, like many growers, I used every traditional best management practice. Yet, year after year, I faced the stark reality of declining yields.
The more I tried to fertilize my way to success, the further I fell.
I came to realize that we as growers must be missing something crucial.
In 2005, I began working with a carbon product called humic. With God's help through years of trials and triumphs, I developed a technology unlike any other that can restore soils and accelerate yield growth sustainably, while reducing our dependence on commercial fertilizers.
CarbonWorks was born.
Growers across the U.S. have been using our products on their farms for over 10 years. While they've seen impressive results, I firmly believe the best is yet to come. As growers continue to use our products, they are discovering more ways to help them grow better.
CarbonWorks continues to move forward as a leader in the industry. We now have four distinct carbon-based products—each designed for a unique purpose.
These products have changed the way growers grow.
To share our unique knowledge with growers all across the U.S. in an effort to help them better utilize their agronomic resources while enhancing yields, promoting sustainable growth, and increasing profitability.
Our vision is for growers to share and collaborate in order that the best farming practices may be found and promoted world-wide. As a company, we desire for all growers to farm sustainably so that our soils will be healthy and productive for future generations.
