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.
