How humic acid works on plant
Humic Acid is a soil conditioner that increases the ability of soil to retain nutrients and improve water-holding capacity. It enhances the soil’s ability to chelate (bind) nutrients and to promote exchange of nutrients between plants and the fertilizers being applied.
The power of humic acid water soluble is due to its properties as a chelating agent. It attaches itself to micronutrients where it forms a bond so that the mineral can be more easily absorbed by plants.
This results in better ion-exchange (Cation Exchange Capacity) and supports better buffering capabilities. When elements such as calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and manganese can be absorbed more easily, it benefits both the growth of plant matter and root mass.
The beneficial effect of adding humic acids 98% can be observed in soil-based cultivation and hydroponic based systems.
