Soluble Humate Powder Benefits
• Stimulates plant enzymes • Stimulates growth and proliferation of desirable soil microorganisms as well as algae and yeasts • Acts as an organic catalyst • Increases root respiration and formation • Increases the availability of micronutrients • Increases the permeability of plant membranes, which increases the uptake of nutrients • Increases the vitamin content of plants • Increases the viability and germination of seed • Accelerates cell division and root development • Contains a wealth of micro-elements such as Si, Fe, Mg, S, Ba, B, Mn, Co, Ni, Ti, Mo, Cu, Pb, Ag and more • Increases photosynthesis in plants • Contains soluble silicon
Humates are vital for healthy plant, tree and turf growth and also act as a pre-biotic to feed soil biology. This vital soil component is susceptible to depletion from oxidation, plant uptake or other common treatments and practices that cause leeching. The depletion rate will lower soil organic matter content if humates are not somehow replaced.
