Most customers have heard of humate soil conditioner, but do not know what it is and its benfits. Today we are going to talk about this.

What is humate soil conditioner?

Soil conditioner is a substance that can change soil characteristics. Humic acid is a high-quality soil conditioner. We call it humate soil conditioner. But why is humic acid a high-quality soil conditioner? The main reasons are as follows.

The benefits of humic acid (humate soil conditioner) to the soil.

  1. Humic acid can improve the physical properties of soil and improve the self-adjusting ability of soil to regulate mositure, microelement, gasand.

Soil organic matter content is an important indicator to measure the level of soil fertility. Humus (that is, humic acid substances) is the main component of soil organic matter. Humus and clay minerals are the basic substances of soil fertility, and the organic-inorganic complex formed by the two is the core substance that forms the basic fertility of soil.

Due to excessive use of cultivated land, slight maintenance, excessive use of chemical fertilizers, and small use of organic fertilizers, the organic matter content of cultivated land in some areas has been reduced, soil quality has deteriorated, and fertility levels have declined.

  1. Humic acid can improve soil agrochemical properties, reduce nutrient loss, improve soil nutrient availability, and enhance soil fertility.

Humic acid has the functions of adsorption, chelation, and complexation, which can increase soil cation exchange capacity. It has the effect of slow release and reduction of leaching loss on the effective nutrients in fertilizer and soil. The inhibitory effect of humic acid on urease slows down the decomposition of urea, so it can reduce the volatilization loss of urea nitrogen in the form of NH3-N and N2O x.

Therefore, the application of humic acid fertilizers can improve the availability of fertilizers and nutrients in the soil, and can reduce the amount of chemical fertilizers by 20% to 30%. Reduce nutrient loss, reduce the pollution of water body and atmosphere by fertilization, and help protect the ecological environment.

Humic acid has the functions of adsorption, ion exchange and redox. It can convert N H 3-N absorption and fixation into effective N H +4-N, and N 2O into NO 3. It can convert the insoluble P, K, and trace elements in the soil into effective nutrients, improve the effectiveness of the ineffective nutrients in the soil, and increase the level of soil fertility. And humic acid also plays a very good role in reducing heavy metal and pesticide pollution.

    Humic acid can improve saline-alkaline soil, adjust pH value, and reduce soil acid-base harm.

Humic acid has weak acidity, adsorption, ion exchange and redox functions, which make it have strong buffering properties. The adsorption and ion exchange capacity of humic acid is 10-20 times higher than that of ordinary soil. Therefore, it is used in the improvement of saline-alkali soil to reduce the harm of saline-alkali and adjust the pH value.

For saline-alkali soil low-yield fields, acidic fertilizers can be used, such as nitro humic acid, calcium humate, and magnesium humate, etc., which can not only supply nutrients, but also play a role in suppressing salt, isolating alkali, and buffering salt-alkali damage; Choose alkaline humic acid fertilizer for acid soil low-yield fields, which can supply nutrients and reduce soil acidity. The application of humic acid fertilizer can buffer the soil acid-base and saline-alkali hazards while improving the physical and chemical properties of saline-alkali soil and acid soil low-yield fields, and increase the level of soil productivity.

Because humic acid has many soil conditioner functions, it is a high-quality soil conditioner. It has a good effect on soil remediation, and has high benefits. If your soil has problems, you can try to use it.
