Benefits of Humic to Plants Above Ground & Beneath the Soil

Earth Smart Solutions is an Authorized Distributor of Humic Growth Solutions.

Humic Growth Solutions is a world leading manufacturer and supplier of bio-stimulant products. Specializing in the wet chemistry extraction of humic and fulvic acids, Humic Growth Solutions offers activated bio-stimulants and fertilizer supplements designed to produce higher quality crops in order to maximize crop yield.

Humic Growth Solutions products are "derived from the finest, richest, and purest source of humic acid in North America and arguably the World. This humic acid source is a weathered type of oxidized sub-bituminous coal rich in humic substances. This humic acid source is similar to the commonly found Leonardite (lignite coal), but [their] source contains a higher concentration of Humic Acids and significantly lower levels of ash and heavy metals, such as lead, arsenic, and mercury."

    Learn about the vast array of benefits of humi[K] to plants in this short video from Humic Growth Solutions:


    How humi[K] benefits plants beneath the soil:

    • Holds nutrients in a bio available form in the soil solution 
    • Increases root production and CO2 absorption 
    • Unlocks soil nutrient reserves 
    • Increases soil aeration & microbial activity 
    • A source of organic carbon for improved soil biology 
    • Forms complexes with nutrients & increases soil CEC 

      How humi[K] benefits plants above the ground:

    • Improved nutrient use efficiency, reducing input requirements 
    • Increases fruit set during flowering, pollination & germination 
    • Enhances nutrient absorption through the stoma & leaf tissue 
    • Improves oxygen availability 
    • Greater diffusion of CO2 to leaf mesophyll cells 
    • Accelerates the breakdown of stubble & leaf residue
