THE EFFECTS OF HUMATES ON SOIL 

The fertility of the soil was always related to its humus content.  It was determined that humic substances participate in the regulation of most important characteristics.  First of all,  they are accountable for the coloring and, therefore, thermal conditions.  It is particularly important for cold clay soil which under the …

Humate Manufacturing Process

In order to be soluble, humates in raw form such as lignite or leonardite must go through an alkaline extraction process. Any of the salts like potassium hydroxide, sodium hydroxide or ammonium hydroxide can be used as the extractant. The potassium hydroxide extracted form is preferred for fertilizing application as …

Humic Acids Used for Hydroponics

In hydroponics helps the environment humic acid supplementation offers many of the same benefits to plants that it does in a soil culture. Because hydroponics is performed in an enclosed environment it is possible to specifically target plants with a minimum of waste. By adding humic acid in hydroponic preparations, …

Humic substance

Humic substances, such as those listed in the above title, play a vital role in soil fertility and plant nutrition. Plants grown on soils which contain adequate humin, humic adds (HAs), and fulvic adds (FAs) are less subject to stress, are healthier, produce higher yields; and the nutritional quality of harvested …

Humus and Humic Acid

Humus Humus is the end product of the microbial decay of organic matter. Humus contains both humic and non-humic material. Humus is relatively stable and fairly resistant to further rapid breakdown. Humus is a tremendous food source for soil microflora. Components of humus are oxidized or mineralized and then utilized …

Leonardite and Humic Acid

Leonardite It is theorized that Leonardite shale originated from trees and other vegetation, which grew during the carboniferous period when most of North America was a tropical type forest. Over the ages, the vegetation underwent compaction and heating, slowly carbonizing and forming coal. Through this compaction, organic acids and esters …

Humic Acids Function

Largely promote the buffering power and fertility of soil by improving the structure. In sandy soil, humic acid will help to increase fertility of soil through its cation exchange capacity to retain water and beneficial micro nutrient .In heavy and compact soil ,Humic acid will work with fungi to construct …

Humic acid and its origin

Humic acid and its origin Organic matter ,humic substance,humic acid ,humate and fulvic acid are closely related,all are come from the natural process of decaying plants and animals body.Organic matter is defined that all the organic substance in the soil with Hydrocarbonated base(containing hydrogen, carbon and oxygen).Humic substance is pure …
