Granular Humates can be broadcast applied either by themselves or mixed with gypsum. Application rates can vary from 100 lbs/acre to greater than 350 acres per acre depending upon the type of soil, organic matter level and frequency of application. Higher rates are usually applied when no prior applications have been made.
Granular humate additions will directly stimulate plant root and top growth by releasing auxin like hormones into the soil enhancing yields. Microbial stimulation also happens when humates are applied. Other improvements are increased water holding capacity, better water efficiency and soil structural improvements, greater plant resistance to diseases.
Since humates are completely decomposed, they do not compete with plants for nitrogen like most other organic materials.
Dry Granular Humates are available in truckloads.
