50/50 BLEND = Soil AND Plant Health

Since Humic Acid (HA) aids in soil health and Fulvic Acid (FA) is key to plant health, then the perfect combination is our 50/50.   The addition of the two make sure to cover all the areas involved in the cycle of a crop, from improved germination and maximum nutrient uptake to higher yielding harvests.

Benefits of 50/50

  • Enhanced germination
  • Improved seedling development
  • Increased uptake of nutrients into the plant
  • Greater drought stress
  • Growth in microbial activity
  • Helps in preventing disease
  • Higher tolerance to fungus
  • CEC of soil will increase
  • Stimulates root, leaf and shoot growth
  • Serves as an energy source for N-fixing bacteria
  • Releases bound nutrients from the soil
  • Increases earthworm populations
  • Higher resistance to parasites
  • Aids in movement of water into plant
  • Easily penetrates leaves increasing photosynthesis

Humic substances and their influence on plant growth and development

According to Dr. Pettit, “Plant growth is influenced indirectly and directly by humic substances. Positive correlations between the humus content of the soil, plant yields and product quality have been published in many different scientific journals. Indirect effects, previously discussed, are those factors which provide energy for the beneficial organisms within the soil, influence the soil’s water holding capacity, influence the soil’s structure, release of plant nutrients from soft minerals, increased availability of trace minerals, and in general improved soil fertility…The absorption of humic substances into seeds has a positive influence on seed germination and seedling development.”1

Thus adding humic and fulvic acid to seeds or within the seed row will improve the seeds ability to germinate and increase the seedlings over all development.

Dr. Pettit states that, “Humic substances have a very pronounced influence on the growth of plant roots. When humic acids (HAs) and/or fulvic acids (FAs) are applied to soil, enhancement of root initiation and increased root growth are observed… Carefully designed experiments have been conducted under controlled conditions to measure plant response. For example, replicate treatments of plants grown within the greenhouse, with and without humic acid and fulvic acids has illustrated how humic substances influence root growth. In repeated experiments the treated root weights averaged from 20 to 50% heavier compared to the weights of non treated roots.”2
