The World Leader in Extracted Humates (Humin, Humic & Fulvic Acids).

Specializing in wet chemistry extraction of Humin, Humic & Fulvic Acids from Oxidized Sub-bituminous Coals (leonardite). Our raw material humate is sourced from Canada & The United States of America. We exclusively manufacture our products in the USA to ensure we maintain the highest organic standards and deliver quality products to our distributors.

We manufacture our Humic Acid products (Potassium Humate) in liquid, spray dried powder (not drum dried flake), or patented water-soluble granule form. Our Fulvic Acid is a liquid concentrate and is NOT derived from peat, herbs, or grasses. It is a true, “low molecular weight” fulvic derived from Oxidized Sub-bituminous Coals (leonardite).

With 6 manufacturing facilities across North America, our products are ready for worldwide distribution, with production capacity capable of meeting agricultural market demands around the globe.

Wet chemistry extraction

Through our proprietary Wet Chemistry extraction process, we ACTIVATE the humate molecules (Humic Acid), making them a functional carbon.

Enhancing metabolic activity in soil is key and one of the main reasons why extracted humates (functional carbons or Humic Acids) are so effective when compared to raw material humates. because Extracted humate or Humic Acid (humus) not only enhance metabolic activity, they also enhance chelation, complexation, buffering, nutrient translocation, aggregate stability and soil health. In other words, raw material humic, simply does not do that.

If your current humic isn’t 100% water soluble… you need to make the switch to Humi[K].

Key benefits of extracted humates (Functional carbon):

  • Enhance nutrient uptake & use efficiency
  • Improve germination rates
  • Increase soil water holding capacity
  • Reduce synthetic fertilizer dependency
  • Maximize yield
  • Cultivate sustainability

Solubility

Our process begins with the highest quality raw material humate micro-pulverized in its naturally dry form, precisely blended into our proprietary alkaline or acidic wet chemistry formulas and micro-quad filtered to separate out all insoluble material.

Where other manufacturers offer similar looking products, it is important to note that not all humic products are the same. as a result, many of our competitor’s products are either completely insoluble (raw material humate/humus) or they contain high levels of undissolved solids. clogging sprayers and most importantly leaving the farmer with nothing but headaches and frustration.

In addition to our wet chemistry extraction, we have developed industry leading spray drying and PATENTED granulation technology to create the world’s finest 100% water soluble, highly concentrated, functional humic acid products.

Remember… We didn’t invent humic, we just perfected it!

 

What are Humic Acids?

All soils and bodies of water contain humic compounds, which are byproducts of the decomposition of organic material such as trees, shrubs and plants. Leonardite has a significant amount of humic acids compared to other organic compounds. Leonardite is the result of a humification process that took 70 million years to complete, whereas peat took only a few thousand years to produce.

Humic and Fulvic acids, are the biological core and major component of natural humic matter. They are intricate molecules that naturally occur in soil, bogs, seas, and freshwater. Humic & Fulvic acids are a fantastic all-natural and organic approach to provide soil and plants bioavailable nutrients.

By extraction, they are separated into humin, humic acid, and fulvic acid. Humic acid, which is the major component, creates the biological core of the humus. Humic acid can be found in a layer of soft brown coal that has not yet transitioned into lignite at concentrations of up to 85-90%. Internationally, this stratum of soft oxidized subbituminous coal is known as leonardite. Its high level of oxidation and high concentration of carboxyl groups in humic acids are what make it so functional.

Humus is made up of short-chained chemical compounds of various types, such as polysaccharides, polypeptides, aliphatic groups (fats), and lignin fragments. These compounds form aggregates with cations and clay particles creating micropores in the soil where roots, water, oxygen, nutrients, and microbes can reside.

What is HUMIN and what are the differences between Humic, Humin and Fulvic acid?

While Humic Substances (Humates) consist of Humic, Fulvic, and Humin (H-U-M-I-N). Humic Acids have a CEC of 280-300 while Fulvic Acids can be over 500, making them excellent for chelating and complexing plant nutrients. Therefore, Humin fraction differs. It has a high cation exchange capacity like humic and a 250-275 Anion Exchange Capacity. Whereas fulvic acids have anion exchange capacity, but humic does not. Both Humic and Fulvic have high CECs, but Humin has more anion exchange capacity.

how does it work?

Humin molecules have both positively charged and negatively charged sites. This means that they can bond with and hold Anions like phosphorus, nitrates, and sulfur as well as negatively charged Cations (calcium, potassium, magnesium, sodium).

 

Important note:

Lastly, it’s important to know that once the plant nutrients have joined with the humate molecules, they are no longer soluble in the soil solution. This keeps them from getting into the air and washing out of the soil. The plant-available nutrient is physically held in the soil by the humate molecules, so the roots of the plant can take it up as needed. For example, if liquid nitrogen 34-0-0 is applied along with extracted Humin molecules, it will effectively stabilize the nitrogen in the soil for up to 60–90 days. This keeps the nitrogen from leaching out of the soil into waterways or escaping into the air, which greatly improves the efficiency with which nutrients are used.
