Humic Acid’s Role in Improving Soil Quality and Plant Growth

Humic acid is a natural bio-stimulant that is derived from leonardite and is among the most concentrated organic material available today. Elemental analysis of humic acid has shown it to consist largely of carbon and oxygen (about 50% and 40% respectively). Humic acid also contains hydrogen (about 5%), nitrogen (about 3%), phosphorous and sulfur (both less than 1%). Humic acid is a complex of closely related macromolecules. These molecules range in size from less than 1000 to more than 100,000 daltons, with the lower mass representing the younger material.

humic-acids-role-in-improving-soil-quality-and-plant-growthHumus compounds are complex natural organic compounds that are formed in soils from plant residues, by a process of “humification”. Humus materials are complex aggregate of brown to dark colored amorphous substances, which have originated during the decomposition of plant and animal residues by microorganisms, under aerobic and anaerobic conditions, in soils, composts, peat bogs, and water basins. Chemically, humus consists of certain constituents of the original plant material resistant to further decomposition; of substances undergoing decomposition; of complexes resulting from decomposition, either by processes of hydrolysis or by oxidation and reduction; and of various compounds synthesized by microorganisms.

Humic acid’s role in improving soil quality

Most people are quick to say Humic Acids are fertilizers, but in fact, it is more of a natural soil conditioner. The benefits far outweigh the costs and with so many soils being depleted around the world today, Humic Acids are an effective product to reverse the depletion trend. In a world where we are seeing world population grow at an exponential rate, and are losing arable acres on which to grow crops, we need to fertilize crops to maximize production and feed the hungry.

By supplying the soil with sufficient humic acid, we help to bind cations (positively charged elements). The ability to chelate positively charged multivalent ions (Mg, Ca, Fe and other ”trace minerals” of value to plants) is probably the most important role of humic acid, with respect to your soil. By chelating the ions, humic acid facilitates the uptake of the ions by means of several mechanisms, one of which is preventing their precipitation (leaching through the soil). Another is the direct and positive influence on their bio-availability. It can also detoxify the soil of heavy metals. Research has shown that heavy metals can be ”locked up” with the addition of humic acid.

Humic acid’s role in improving Plants growth

One way plant growth is improved is through the structural improvement of both clay and sandy soil allowing for better root growth development. Plant growth is also improved by the ability of the plant to uptake and receive more nutrients. Humic acid is especially beneficial in freeing up nutrients in the soil so that they are made available to the plant as needed. For instance if an aluminum molecule is binded with a phosphorus one, humic acid detaches them making the phosphorus available for the plant. Humic acid is also especially important because of its ability to chelate micronutrients increasing their bio-availability.

The activities of beneficial soil microbes are crucial for the sustainability of any plant growth. Humic acid stimulates microbial activity by providing the indigenous microbes with a carbon source for food, thus encouraging plant’s growth and activity. Soil microbes are responsible for solubilizing vital nutrients such as phosphorus that can then be absorbed by the humic acid and in turn made available to the plant for better growth and root development. Additionally, microbes are responsible for the continued development of humus in the soil as it continues to break down not fully decomposed organic matter. This in-situ production of humus continues to naturally add to the humic acid base and its benefits.

Ecological Farming

The concept of Ecological farming enables communities to produce enough food to feed themselves.

This form of agriculture helps in developing a future of healthy farming, and healthy food, to all people. Ecological farming helps the world’s population to mitigate and adapt to climate change.

Ecological farming is not same as organic farming, however, there are many similarities between Ecological farming and Organic farming. Ecological farming methods include all methods but not limited to organic produce, which regenerate ecosystem services like; prevents soil erosion, water infiltration and retention, carbon sequestration in the form of humus etc. Many techniques are also used in Ecological farming including no till, multi species cover crops, strips cropping, terrace cultivation, shelter belts, pasture cropping etc.

In other words, Ecological farming is in harmony with nature, using cultivation techniques and breeding programmes that do not merely rely on soluble chemical fertilizers, pesticides or insecticides, or genetic engineered change. Organic livestock are reared on feed produced under these conditions, are kept in conditions that suit their natural state as far as possible and don’t rely on the blanket use for medicines to overcome unhealthy conditions.

BENEFITS:

  • Ecological farming involves the introduction of symbiotic species, where possible, to support the ecological sustainability of the farm. Associated benefits include a reduction in ecological debt and elimination of dead zones.
  • Ecological farming is a pioneering, practical development which aims to create globally sustainable land management systems, and encourages review of the importance of maintaining biodiversity in food production and farming end products.
  • One foreseeable option is to develop specialized automata to scan and respond to soil and plant situations relative to intensive care for the soil and the plants. Accordingly, conversion to ecological farming may best use the information age, and become recognized as a primary user of robotics and expert systems.
  • Ecological farming keeps food production in the hands of farmers and away from corporate control.

Analyses conducted by scientist around the world has shown that ecological farming makes sense economically. First, this modern farming method leads to increased crop yields. Globally, ecological farming can produce an average of about 30% more food per hectare than conventional agriculture. In developing countries, ecological farming can produce roughly 80% more food per hectare. Second, cost-effective to use natural, locally available fertilizers and organic pest control. This saves costs on synthetic chemical inputs that pollute.

Humic Acid Uses

The different Humic acid uses as follows;

  • Humic acid uses enhance nutrient uptake by combining nutrients and humic aid as well as keep a well-balanced nutrition.
  • Humic acid uses improve the structure of soil, increase the buffering powder of soil, optimize NPK absorption by plants.
  • Humic acid uses neutralize both acid and alkaline soils, regulate the PH value of soils, with the prominent effect in alkaline and acidic soil.
  • Humic acid uses reduce nitrate leaking into the groundwater and protect the underground water
  • Humic acid uses enhance the resilience of crops, such as cold, drought, pest, disease and toppling resistance
  • Humic acid uses stabilize nitrogen and improve nitrogen efficiency (as an additive with urea)
  • Humic acid uses promote healthier, stronger plants and beautify appearance
  • Humic acid uses buffering the effects of excessive elements (particularly sodium), toxic chemicals and heavy metals.
  • Humic acid uses promoting seed germination in a shorter time
  • Humic acid uses offering soil structure improvement by promoting fungi to create a crumb structure for better water and oxygen intake and improved root penetration
  • Humic acid uses extending the performance of urea in the soil by 60-80 days and buffers the burning effect of urea as a foliar

Humic acid

humic-acid-usesHumic acid is the most important part of humic substances, which are the major organic constituents of soil (humus), peat, coal, many upland streams, dystrophic lakes, and ocean water. It is produced by biodegradation of dead organic matter.

All humic acids are primarily composed of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen. They may also contain sulfur and phosphorus in varying minute amounts depending on the source. Like most natural polymers, humic acids have complex structures and contain a number of biologically active functional groups including carboxylic acid, phenolic hydroxyl, methoxyl and amine groups.

It is generally recognized that soil, regardless of geographic location, must contain a minimum level of organic matter in the form of humus or humic acids. Soils with organic matter contents below these levels will not produce optimum crop yields.

One way to supplement organic matter in low humus soils is to add commercial humic acid preparations. For greatest performance, such preparations should contain effective levels of both humic and fulvic acids. Optimum application rates vary with crop and soil type but should be in the 10 – 300 ppm range.

  • Improve overall plant growth
  • Increase root vitality
  • Improve nutrient uptake
  • Increase chlorophyll synthesis
  • Improve seed germination
  • Increase yields
