Humic acid is widely used in agriculture as Soil Conditioner, Plant Growth Regulator, Fertilizer Additives. Most importantly can increase soil organic carbon, increase soil fertility and yields.
Humic acid has a direct function to balance the pH of the soil, to make soil pH suitable for plant growth. Fundamentally, it helps to improve the structure and regulate the PH of the soil and increase soil fertility.
Humic acid could largely stabilize nitrogen storage and slow-release, P is a release from AL +in soil, also another microelement is in the form of easy-available by plants, meanwhile, the beneficial fungi are active to produce different kind enzymes. To help to create the structure of the soil to increase macroelements, microelements binding capacity and water holding capacity, thus increase soil fertility.
Humic substances are a mixture of complex organic compounds that are usually separated into three fractions: humic acids, fulvic acids and humins. The properties of humate products on the market depend on the ratios between these fractions as well as on the content of inorganic ballast. Interactions of humic substances with environmental chemicals have long been studied. It has been found that humic substances can enhance biotic and abiotic degradation of phenols, polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and pesticides in the aquatic environment. They are generally recognized to be responsible for the binding of major parts of the available metal ions in water and soil. Interaction between humic substances and hazardous wastes chemicals is most likely to occur when such chemicals have been disposed of underground. High adsorption capacity, high ion exchange capacity and environmental compatibility makes humic substances an attractive material for environmental remediation. Conestoga -Rovers & Associates (CRA) recently initiated treatability studies on the application of humates in environmental remediation
Humic acid is a chemical produced by decaying plants. People use it to make medicine.
People take humic acid for stimulating the immune system and treating the flu (influenza), avian flu, swine flu, and other viral infections.
