HUMIC ACIDS

an essential component for plant growth

  •  INTRODUCTION

  • Humic acids are complex organic molecules that are formed by the breakdown of organic matter. Humic acid influences soil fertility through its effect on the water-holding capacity of the soil. Humic acids make important contributions to soil stability and soil fertility leading to exceptional plant growth and micronutrient uptake.

    There has been much interest in the subject of soil humus and humates over the years. There is basic agreement on the benefits of humus. Humic acids are reported to increase the permeability of plant membranes, so promoting the uptake of nutrients. There is evidence of a positive effect of humic acid substances on the growth of various groups of microorganisms. There is also evidence that some of the humate materials contain large populations of Actinomycetes (microorganisms that share the properties of both fungi and bacteria). They are capable of degrading a wide range of substances including celluloses, humicelluloses, proteins, and lignin.

    The coal-humic fertilizers activate the biochemical processes in plants (respiration, photosynthesis and chlorophyll content) and increase the quality and yield of many crops. It is clear that humic acids are a benefit to the farmer.

  • increases crop yield
  • increases permeability of plant membranes
  • increases the uptake of nutrients
  • enhances growth of soil microorganisms
  • activates biochemical processes in plants
  • stimulates root development
  • enhances phosphate utilization of plants
  • has a high base exchange capacity
  • stimulantes plant growth

  • HUMIC ACIDS are extracted from ground Leonardite, an oxidized form of lignite, and are the principal constituents of organic vegetable matter in an advanced state of decomposition.

    Humification thus is an evolving process where organic matter is being changed, first as young Humus, becoming stable Humus and finally mineralization that makes humic acid. Humic acids derived from Leonardite are quite stable, their oxidation grade and components are uniform.

    Humic acids have two main components: humic acid and fulvic acid, in different proportions according to their origin and extraction method. The mixture of these acids is generally known as humic acid, because of its universal connotation with the humic concept that describes maximum fertility and optimum soil condition.

    HUMUS-GRO

    HUMUS-GRO and HUMUS BIO-GRO can be applied at the rate of five liters per hectare of cultivation dissolved in 100-200 liters of water.  Best results are obtained with 1 application prior to planting and then another application after sprouting.  In order for these products to be properly assimilated in the soil it is necessary to incorporate water (either by rain or irrigation) prior to 7 days after applying the product.

     

    HUMIC-GRO

    75% GRANULAR HUMIC ACID
    This product is a granular form of humic acid with a 72-76% factor of purity. It is a very convenient method of applying organic matter to the soil since it mixes easily  with other granulated fertilizers. It can be applied to all crops and should be blended with other fertilizers at the rate of 20% of the amount of fertilzer normally recommended for each crop.
