Humic Acid’s Role in Fertilization

humusHumic acid is technically not a fertilizer, although in some walks people do consider it that. Humic acid is an effective agent to use as a complement to synthetic or organic fertilizers. In many instances, regular humic acid use will reduce the need for fertilization due to the soil’s and plant’s ability to make better use of it. In some occurrences, fertilization can be eliminated entirely if sufficient organic material is present and the soil can become self sustaining through microbial processes and humus production.

It does not matter what type of soil you have. It does not matter what type of crops you grow. For as long as we use King Humus plus we can still save our soil.

How Does Humic Acid Effect Microbial Activity and What is its Role?

fertilizerhandThe activities of beneficial soil microbes are crucial for the sustainability of any soil and plant growth. Humic acid stimulates microbial activity by providing the indigenous microbes with a carbon source for food, thus encouraging their growth and activity. Soil microbes are responsible for solubilizing vital nutrients such as phosphorus that can then be absorbed by the humic acid and in turn made available to the plant.

Additionally, microbes are responsible for the continued development of humus in the soil as it continues to break down not fully decomposed organic matter. This in-situ production of humus continues to naturally add to the humic acid base and its benefits.

How Does Humic Acid Improve Plant Growth?

kinghumusplus2One way plant growth is improved is through the structural improvement of both clay and sandy soil allowing for better root growth development.

Plant growth is also improved by the ability of the plant to uptake and receive more nutrients. Humic acid is especially beneficial in freeing up nutrients in the soil so that they are made available to the plant as needed. For instance if an aluminum molecule is binded with a phosphorus one, humic acid detaches them making the phosphorus available for the plant. Humic acid is also especially important because of its ability to chelate micronutrients increasing their bio-availability.

What Is King Humus Plus?

kinghumusplusHumic Acid (or King Humus Plus) is not technically a fertilizer since it does not directly provide nutrients to plants, although in some walks people do consider it that, but it does work as a soil conditioner. Thus, it’s primary target is the soil.

King Humus Plus has a beneficial impact on the growth and cultivation of crops (vegetable & non-vegetable), citrus, turf, flowers, and particularly in organically-deficient soils. King Humus Plus also stimulates microbial activity by providing the indigenous microbes with a carbon source for food, thus encouraging their growth and activity. Soil microbes are responsible for solubilizing vital nutrients such as phosphorus that can then be absorbed by King Humus Plus and in turn made available to the plant.

King Humus Plus also acts as a Plant Growth Stimulant. King Humus Plus is said to increase root vitality, improve nutrient uptake, increase chlorophyll synthesis, help seed germination, increase fertilizer retention, stimulate beneficial microbial activity and promote healthier plants and improved yields. It is especially beneficial in freeing up nutrients in the soil so that they are made available to the plant as needed. Its primary value in helping plant growth is its effect in preparing soil to be receptive to moisture and nutrients.

When applied to clay soils, humic acid can help break up compacted soils, allowing for enhanced water penetration and better root zone growth and development. When applied to sandy soils, humic acid adds essential organic material necessary for water retention thus improving root growth and enhancing the sandy soil’s ability to retain and not leach out vital plant nutrients.
