HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Agricultural producers and businessmen from all over the U.S. and nearly one dozen other countries are in the Hub City this week, learning more about a Hattiesburg-based company that, for the second year in a row, has received top rankings from INC Magazine.

They gathered at the Lake Terrace Convention Center to attend a quarterly meeting of Bio Soil Enhancers, Inc.

That company manufactures SumaGrow, a product which helps farmers increase crop yields while reducing or eliminating the need for fertilizer.

Recently, Bio Soil Enhancers, Inc. was ranked by INC Magazine as the 2nd fastest growing private company in Mississippi and the 4th fastest growing private manufacturing company in the U.S. 

"These classes keep getting bigger and bigger," said Lou Elwell, CEO of Bio Soil Enhancers, Inc. "We used to hold them in our office, then we went to a community center, now here we are at the (Lake Terrace) convention center. We have over 70 people, new attendees from eleven different countries," Elwell said.

"I think this company is going to explode in the next few years, because we have a concept that we've developed called carbon-smart farming," said Walter Gregory, a master distributor who's attending the seminar. "And what that really is, is carbon-negative farming, which in other words is, we're putting the carbon back in the ground, taking it out of the atmosphere," he said.  

That meeting wraps up Wednesday.
