Ancient Liquid Humate soil conditioner is a bioavailable concentrate for improving soil structure, nutrient uptake, and conditions related to root growth.
Ancient Liquid Humate is designed to provide these benefits to the root zone in the most bioavailable form.
Humic acids and kelp provide synergistic benefits to your plants and soil.
Humic acid allows for greater production of soil aggregates through enzymatic reactions. This binds your soil particles together in a way which provides stability, air-flow, water retention, microbe-housing, nutrient collection sites, and easier travel for roots.
In addition humic acid binds to cation-exchange-sites, where nutrients are transfered between soil and root, and increases the capacity for exchange – resulting in higher levels of nutrient uptake. Simultaneously, the humic acid is chelating nutrients trapped in clay particles and delivering them to the cation-exhcange-site; these are likely nutrients that would have never reached the plant otherwise.
Used as a foliar treatment humic acids are shown to increase the levels of trace minerals and valuable micro-nutrients, adding another benefit to your plant above the root-zone.
Our inclusion of the cold-water kelp offers benefit as well – Your soils existing microbial life will flourish with the added food source and will work to convert the nutrients within.
- Improves soil conditions to facilitate a healthy root system.
- Increases bio-available carbon and other trace minerals in the root zone.
- Increases carbon-to-nitrogen ratio; improves nitrogen uptake.
- Increases uptake of other key nutrients; improves fertilizer efficiency.
- Improves soil structure and water holding capacity.
- Revitalizes tired soil.
- Increases population of beneficial microbes.
- Acts as a pH buffer, and improves nutrient availability in pH poor soils.
- Registered Organic Input
Mix 1 cup (8 fl. oz) of Ancient Liquid Humate with 5 cups of water. Apply 1 pint of mixture per plant or shrub and 1 quart of mixture per tree. Apply every 2 months.
Hose-end sprayer – apply at 1 quart of Ancient Liquid Humate to cover 1,000 square feet of turf. Apply monthly during growing season.
Foliar Feeding: Mix at a rate of 1oz per quart of water and spray leaves until thouroughly covered in a fine mist. Spray both top and bottom of leaes for best effect. Repeat on a weekly basis. Leafy Greens should not be treated foliarly.
Ancient Liquid Humate has a high pH before dilution. Do not mix directly with acid solutions.
