Click the heading above to read why humates are so important in our soil
20 + Benefits of Humates
1. Improves water holding capacity of soil.
2. Large amounts of humate material resists droughts more effectively and produce better yields where rainfall or irrigation may be insufficient.
3. Improves the workability of soil.
4. Reduces soil erosion by increasing the cohesive forces of fine soil particles.
5. Possess high ion-exchange capacities thus making possible better retention and utilization of fertilizers and preventing leaching away from the root zones.
6. Liberates carbon dioxide from soil calcium carbonates and thus make it available to the plant through the roots.
7. Increase plant nutrition by supplying available trace and minor elements.
8. Reacts (Sequesters) with salt solutions to protect plant roots from burn.
9. In alkaline soils, humus reduces the amount and activity of high soil pH.
10. In acid soils, humus absorbs and combines and retains certain toxic soluble aluminium compounds.
11. Promotes soil drainage.
12. Improves sugar content of fruits and vegetables.
13. Increases seed germination rates.
14. Produces stronger, faster growing seedlings.
15. Prevents crusting of soils.
16. Increases plant recovery after mowing or damage.
17. Increases total growth of plants and yield.
18. Prevents leaching of chemical fertilizers.
19. Speeds decomposition of poisons.
20. Maintains pH range between 5 to 7 thus aids balancing soil pH.
21. Increases root system development.
