HUMATES Single most productive input in sustainable agriculture
Are the result of decomposed prehistoric plant and animal matter with many trace elements included. Because it was once living organism it has the many of the properties available to provide plants what they need for rapid and healthy growth. Humates contain Fulvic, Humic and Ulmic acid and Lignin. High quality humates are mostly organic carbon.

A substantial fraction of the mass of the humic acids is in carboxylic acid functional groups, which endow these molecules with the ability to chelate (bind) (precipitate in some media, make solution in other media) positively charged multivalent ions (Mg2+, Ca2+, Fe2+, Fe3+ and most other “trace elements” of value to plants.
Humates decompose and absorb existing residual pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers by binding them to different compounds such as lignin. The beneficial soil biology can then work at breaking down these harmful chemicals into simpler compounds which can be absorbed by plant roots.
