Fluid Journal : Spring 2011
FROM THE PUBLISHERS To Whom Much Is Owed Over the past several years we've lost two principals who had much to do with the perpetuation of the Fluid Fertilizer Foundation (FFF) as we know it today. In June of '08 we saw Bill Lohry pass from this life and most recently, this April, Hovey Tinsman leave us. In the summer of 1992 Bill Lohry worked to restructure the FFF as its own entity, separate from what was then the National Solutions Fertilizer Association (NFSA) that subsequently was merged into the Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA). He also worked to found this publication which enjoys its 19th year of publication. Over these years Bill worked tirelessly to promote the concept of fluid fertilizers through the FFF until the day of his passing. Hovey Tinsman also was involved in the restructuring of the NFSA into the FFF, which was a research division of the NFSA at the time. He also was instrumental in the formation of a newsletter, the Fluid Digest, an interim publication and predecessor to the Fluid Journal, that both he and Bill put together. He too worked tirelessly to promote the fluid concept and the goals of the FFF until the day of his passing. Both Bill and Hovey were numbered among those early apostles, dating back to the '50s into the '60s, who launched and helped introduce the ag world to fluid fertilizers. Bill was president of Nutra-Flo Chemical Company in Sioux City, Iowa, and Hovey was president of Twin State, Inc. in Davenport, Iowa. Each also served as presidents of the NFSA and financially supported both the NFSA and FFF We'll miss these two, their charm and humor. Our job now is to carry on their good work. And well done it was. "Bill and Hovey were numbered among those early apostles, dating back to the '50s into the '60s, who launched and helped introduce the ag world to fluid fertilizers."
