an essential component for plant growth
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.

|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.
15% HUMIC ACID LIQUID
This product is an organic amendment with a base of concentrated humic
and fulvic acids in liquid form.

15% HUMIC ACID LIQUID plus Biological Activator
This product is an organic amendment with a base of concentrated
humic and fulvic acids combined with a biological activator. The
biological activator, resulting from a special fermentation process,
provides microorganisms, essential nutrients that stimulate growth and
metabolism leading to a more active life cycle.

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.
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.
