GS Plant Foods’ Liquid Humic Acid Concentrate is easily assimilated by plants and some of its main functions include improving plant immunity, improving plant metabolism, improving plant root development, improving the supply of plant nutritional elements and increasing the formation of ferments. Humic Acid promotes the increased accumulation of chlorophyll, sugar, amino acids and more and improves the efficiency of nitrogen utilization, allowing for reduced fertilizer rates. Our 32 ounce bottle of concentrate yields up to 32 gallons!
One of the primary actions of Humic Acid is to increase the plant’s ability to withstand the stresses of heat, drought, cold, disease, insect and other types of environmental or cultural pressures. Humic also increases general plant productivity, in terms of yield, as well as plant stem strength.
Within the soil, humic stimulates soil microorganisms, promoting Humus. Humus, the building block of "organic matter", is one of the best natural conditioners for soil. This Liquid Humic Acid is made from compost and Leonardite, which is produced by the natural oxidation of exposed lignite, a low-grade coal.
Applying Liquid Humic acid has the following advantages:
• Penetrates the soil quickly, going directly to the roots for rapid absorption
• Easier to apply than compost
• Can be used with indoor plants
• Can be used with other fertilizers or soil conditioners
• Helps stabilize soil pH
• Increases soil bacteria
• Increases water retention
