WHAT IS HUMALITE?
Humic substances are black to brown, highly functionalized carbon-rich macromolecules. They are naturally occurring brown to black plant organic material. They are comprised of humic acid, fulvic acid and humin, which together are commonly referred to as “humin” or “humics”. These various forms of humics have been used throughout the world to increase soil microbial populations, soil quality, crop quality and crop yields.
In Agricultural and Turf applications humics have been shown to enhance nutrient availability by maintaining the nutrients in the soil root zone. The high cation exchange capacity of humic products results in an ability to retain soil moisture and make available important plant nutrients to enhance plant growth and yield. Increases in phosphorus and nitrogen uptake have been demonstrated through numerous research trials.
In Environmental applications humic material has been shown to improve structure and water holding capacity, increase microbial growth and aggregate sandy soils. Humic materials are also able to increase potassium availability in problem soils. The addition of humic material to soil leads to an improvement in the productivity of the soil. For the environmental industry it can lead to faster, more efficient, and higher quality land reclamation.
