In Memoriam

Dr. John Ansel Armstrong Thomson, inventor of the horticultural vitamins-hormones solution SUPERthrive, passed away on November 28, 2011, five days after his 100th birthday.

Throughout World War II, his SUPERthrive was used by five U.S. Government departments (Army Corps of Engineers, Air Force, Navy, Department of Agriculture, and Forest Service) respectively to: transplant mature trees for defense plant camouflage; plant and sustain low-dust turf landing fields; improve soil conditions where salt interfered with plant success; develop vital drug- and oil-bearing plants domestically; and increase production of necessary guayule rubber.
