What are Humic Acid Bio-Stimulants?

Humic acids are organic compounds formed by the natural decay of plant and animal materials. These organic acids are a major component of healthy soils and are also found in pre-historic deposits. Humic matter is formed through the chemical and biological humification of plant and animal matter and through the biological activities of micro-organisms. Humic substances are complex molecules that exist naturally in soils, peats, oceans, and fresh waters. One of the best sources of humic acids is lignite coal.

HAB’s are not fertilizers.They restore and condition depleted soils and help plants absorb nutrient sand water. This can greatly improve crop yields and reduce dependence and over-utilization of traditional NPK fertilizers.

Humic acids are an excellent natural and organic way to provide crops and soil with a concentrated dose of essential nutrients,vitamins, and trace elements.

Humic bio-stimulants enhance plant growth(biomass production),improve the fertility and condition of the soil, and allow plants to grow in soil that otherwise would below-producing or non-arable.

Benefits of HAB

HAB Regenerative & Agricultural Objectives

There is a growing global demand for better quality foods, produced and harvested in a healthier manner, and at higher volumes. This requires better yields of food crops and eco-friendly, sustainable ways to produce them. To achieve this, fertilization inputs of natural origins have become a core objective in agriculture. HAB’s meet that objective.

HAB’s are compatible with the most advanced farming techniques used in integrated crop management. Natural plant bio-stimulants are important in sustainable crop production systems primarily due to its ability to enhance proper use of nutrients, efficiency, a biotic stress tolerance and crop quality. This has brought the importance of HAB formulations to the core of regenerative and long-term agricultural objectives.

By optimizing HAB efficacy, bio-stimulants evolve into a natural preparation that are regenerative to the environment, improve the general health, vitality, and growth of crops and plants, and protect them against diseases, while achieving higher yields.

  • Replaces or reduces use of artificial NPK fertilizer with an organic, productive alternative
  • Increases yields 12% to 50% and Increases water retention by up to 30%
  • Protects against toxins and chemicals, binding heavy metals, radionuclides, and organic toxins, preventing them from entering the plants
  • Increases the content of mobile phosphorus (1.5 to 2 times), exchangeable potassium, and assimilable nitrogen (2 to 2.5 times), improving uptake by plant roots
  • Ammonifying bacteria increases by 3 to 5 times. Even a tenfold increase has been experienced and recorded in our lab
  • Nitrifying bacteria increases by 3 to 7 times, which greatly reduces the release of molecular nitrogen into the atmosphere by as much as 10 times
  • Retains nutrients and micronutrients unbound by soil minerals resulting in greater accessibility to roots
  • Increases the buffer capacity of the soil to maintain a natural pH balance
