Natural soil conditioner with high content of humic acids (min. 62%)
For Agriculture, gardening, and the environment
HUMAC® Agro is a natural soil conditioner with high content of humic acids made from activated Leonardite, a 100% active natural substance. The product is applied to soil or substrates during fertilization to enhance various chemical, physical, and biological processes which in turn improve soil fertility and soil properties. Humic acids are the primary energy source for biological processes and have properties of physiologically active substances regulating plant growth and development. No chemical additives were used during the manufacturing process. As of 2020, the product is Kosher certified for producing Kosher approved crops.
Improves soil structure – creates stable soil aggregates by bonding sand, silt, and clay particles, improves soil aeration and water management, as well as it significantly reduces the risk of water erosion
Retains water in the soil – improves infiltration into soil and its water retention capacity; increases the volume of water available for plant uptake
Soil detoxifier - immobilizes toxic metals, PCBs, dioxins, and other toxins in the soil limiting their bioavailability and/or assisting in their biodegradation
Adds macro, micro-nutrients and trace elements to the soil linked to natural amino acids in chelated form making them readily available for plant uptake
Improves conditions for the development of soil bacteria, microorganisms and increases the rate of decomposition of organic compounds, substrates, unused nutrients in the soil making them available for plant uptake
Significantly increase the growth of a plants root system (30 – 50%). A larger root system increases the plant's drought resistance and increases nutrient uptake for faster growth
Significantly reduces the leaching of nutrients from soil (N, P, K, Ca, Mg, and other mineral trace elements) optimizing fertilizer efficiency
Increases soil humus content, supplies organic carbon to soil (50% of its volume)
Increases plant's tolerance to biotic and abiotic stress factors such as fungal diseases or drought, salinity, and extreme temperatures

METHOD OF APPLICATION
HUMAC Agro can be applied to all commonly grown staple and specialty crops/ including ornamental greenery and lawns/ except those that require significantly different soil pH compared to neutral e.g. blueberries. The basic dosage of the product is 200-500kg /ha.
Humic acids require some time to fully reveal their positive effect on soil and plants. Therefore, the best to apply the product is in the period from autumn to early spring before planting. However, it can be applied at any time during the growing season. For best results, it is recommended to work in the product into the top 10cm layer of soil. If conditions do not allow this type of application, the product can be easily spread on the soil surface.
Repeat applications are recommended after every 3-4 years.
During this whole period, we recommend reducing the volume of all mineral fertilizers and especially nitrogen fertilizers by up to 30-50% in the area where HUMAC Agro was used, compared to regular application rates based on the standard fertilizer application calculations.
HUMAC Agro has a positive effect on soil fertility, production quality and overall profitability of crop production. However, in addition to its use, it is necessary to observe the generally applicable principles for sustainable agriculture
