Humic acid is a natural soil conditioner that acts as an organic chelator or microbial stimulator. It has a unique carbon matrix which includes a high concentration of trace minerals and organic acids. Humic acid enhances the plant’s ability to take in essential nutrients and improves soil structure. Researchers at The Andersons have combined pure, dry humate with its patented DG process to create uniform, spherical dispersing granules that move quickly into the soil, are dust free and easy to apply.
ﾓBIOLOGICALLY ACTIVEﾔ COMPONENTS OF HUMIC DG
Dual carbon sources make Humic DG unique. Plant based humic acid precursor is combined with mineral based humate to create a dispersing humic acid granule with a broad range of biological benefits.
HUMIC ACID PRECURSOR is the highly soluble portion of Humic DG that releases quickly into the soil upon contact with water. Through biochemical reactions in the soil, humic acid precursor is transformed into soluble Fulvic and Humic Acids.
FULVIC ACIDS can be absorbed by root tissue and provide hormone-like stimulation to the plant. They also aid in the efficiency of plant metabolic reactions.
HUMIC ACIDS can be soluble or insoluble. They have a high cation exchange capacity (C.E.C.) and help chelate nutrients and stimulate soil microbes.
HUMINS are large, high carbon, insoluble molecules that are long lasting in the soil and have great nutrient holding power.
