Humic fulvic acidsfor crop fertilizers and soil amendments
Humic fulvic acid materials very stable, improving soil structure but not easily used by plant roots.
Fulvic acids, on the other hand, are the most bio-available of these chemicals but have little effect on improving the soil.
Humic acids can be applied to your soil to provide the most benefits, improving both the soil and the plants growing in it. Humic acids work to raise the Cation Exchange Capacity, or CEC, of your soil, which is important for increasing nutrient and water retention and uptake, as well as improving the soil structure. In field studies, plants grown with humic acids are bigger and have stronger roots. Even though they are called acids, they will not make your soil acidic and can be used in any type of soil, and for all your veggies, flowers, trees, and lawn.
Key Benefits of humic acid and fulvic acid Products:
creates healthier soils
Increases plant enzyme production
Stimulates desirable micro-organisms
Enhances natural resistance against disease and pests
Stimulates root growth
Increases root formation
Increase vitamin and mineral content of plants
Improves germination and viability of seeds
Stimulates plant growth
Humic acids make nutrients more available in soil that might not otherwise be available. How exactly? It starts with the organic composition of the acids. Humic acids are naturally oxidized, which gives them a net negative charge. Thus, positive ions, also known as “cations”, are attracted to these big molecules and bind to them. This “cation exchange capacity” is a unique and highly beneficial feature of humic acids. And many of the nutrients that plants need—such as Magnesium, Calcium, Iron, and other trace minerals—are positively charged. So in the presence of humic acids, these nutrients unlock from the soil and bind to humic acids. Then they can then be transferred next to the root system of the plant.
The root systems are also negatively charged, at a stronger negative charge than the humic acid. So the positive ions bound to the humic acid release for uptake into the plant. Without this vital system, many nutrients would remain locked in soil and unavailable to plants they’re meant to fertilize.
