Humic Acid - Granular - 5 lb
Granular Humic Acid is a highly concentrated source of humic substances that is ideal for use on fields, turf, and vegetable gardens. Carefully mined from one of the world's richest deposits, it is derived from the ancient remains of decomposed organic plant materials and may increase micronutrient uptake by plants.
Naturally occurring, unaltered oxidized lignite, crushed, screened and graded to a particle size of 1-3 mm.
If humic material was to be applied as a raw material like it is in North America, you would be able to boost your levels of organic matter while remediating the soil from years of chemical abuse. We all know that the raw humic material is insoluble, but I often find this term misleading.
Raw humic material may be relatively insoluble, but research shows that the response time of granular humic material in the soil is a matter of weeks. In fact, within 12 weeks Black Earth’s Mini Granule Fines will be 100% dissolved. So why not just plan ahead, apply this material before you seed your crop? By the time your seedling requires the necessary minerals the humic material has already boosted the microbial activity, broken down the soil particles and is helping to retain the moisture in the soil.
2 cups ≈ 1 lb; 1/2 cup ≈ 4 oz; 1 tbsp ≈ 0.5 oz
Vegetable Gardens & Flower Beds: To prepare smaller gardens, apply 1/4-1/2 cup per square foot and thoroughly mix into the top 3″ of garden soil in spring or fall. To prepare larger gardens, apply 1-2 lbs. per 100 square feet and thoroughly mix into the top 3″ of garden soil in spring or fall. For new transplants, add 1 tbsp. per hole, mix into soil and water in well.
Row Crops/Acreage: Apply 75-150 lbs per acre. Apply in early spring, either pre-plant or with seed, or in the fall, post-harvest. Can be applied to all crops.
Containers: For new plantings, add 1-2 tsp. per gallon of soil and mix thoroughly or add 1-2 lbs. per cubic yard. For established plants, lightly mix 1-2 tsp. per gallon into the soil surface every other month during the growing season.
Lawns: For smaller lawns, apply 1 lb per 100 square feet and water well in spring and fall. For larger lawns, apply 10 lbs. per 1,000 square feet and water in well in spring and fall. Results may be enhanced if applied following aeration. For new lawns, apply 10 lbs. per 1,000 square feet and mix into top 3″ of soil before seeding or sodding.
