Can we apply Humic & Fulvic acid on oil palm to increase its yield?

The researches show that, the yield increase in oil palm is usually closely related to fertilization problems, especially in the rainy heat, where soil nutrients are easily leached area. Generally, oil palms growth have high nutrient requirements for farming, so the growers should pay more attention to its fertilization.

Oil palm is a crop that needs a lot of nitrogen fertilizer, phosphorus fertilizer, potassium fertilizer and magnesium fertilizer, among above four kind of fertilizer, phosphorus fertilizer is the most important fertilizer,because phosphorus is the key factor that determines crop yield. Nitrogen and phosphorus mixed fertilizers have significant effects on young oil palms.

In the absence of nitrogen, the leaves of oil palm seedlings and young field trees are all pale green to yellow, and such a well-grown legume cover can actually provide enough nitrogen for oil palm.

When phosphorus is deficient, oil palm grows slowly but does not show obvious symptoms, the final yield will 30% lower than that used phosphorus fertilizer.

Potassium and magnesium are important components of chlorophyll. With potassium and magnesium fertilizers, the leaves of the plants are greener than before, and the number and weight of the ears also increase. Magnesium fertilization may help reduce leaf discoloration and premature wilting.

The relationship between oil palm and soil?

Many researchers engaged in oil palm cultivation think that although the oil palm root system is very developed and can penetrate deep into the soil, it also requires very fertile soil. Oil palm requires soil with deep regolith, loose, well-ventilated, neutral pH or slightly alkaline

The structure of the underlying soil is also very important. Soils rich in humus, such as newly cultivated juvenile forest soils, and alluvial soils with good water and fertility are very suitable for the growth of oil palm. Humus contains Humic Acid, Fulvic Acid, they have the functions as follows:

1.Improves soil structure,

2.Improving saline alkali soil, the acidic soil or alkaline oil are both converted to neutral, which is best suitable for oil palm plant growth,

3. Enhances PH buffering capacity,

4. Increases cationic exchange,

5. Increases nutrient exchange and retention,

6. Improves nutrient absorption,

7. an increase in the synthesis of proteins and nucleic acids, which will facilitate the action of enzymes formed with some amino acids and micro-nutrients

contributes to an increased exploitation of water by the plant,

8. Increase the amount of chlorophyll, and the width and thickness of leaves, enhances photosynthesis and respiration,

9. stimulates root development and increase plant growth hormones, increase the root quantities more than 30%,

10. enhance plant growth, yield and quality,

11. Increase fertilizer utilizing efficiency, reduce 20%-30% for Macroelement fertilizer, have the function of fixing nitrogen, releasing phosphorus from soil,activating potassium.

As we see, Humic acid fulvic acid is have very good benefits on oil palm growth, can provide good soil condition, increase the oil palm yield & quality,some oil palm grower may want to know, how apply humic & fulvic acid on oil palm tree,and how many grams each tree per year? normally there are two methods to apply Humic & Fulvic Acids on oil palm, broadcast 50-80g per tree water soluble humic aicd granule on the oil near palm tree roots in rainy season or areas with abundant rainfall, one time per year, or dissolve 15-20g humic & fulvic acids into water firstly, then spray it on the soil near the root, 3-4 times yearly.
