Learn the basics:

Fulvic acids are organic acids that arise naturally in decomposing organic material called humus. 

Fulvic acids are the only part of humus to be soluble in alkaline, acid and neutral environments.  This is an important quality, since plants absorb nutrients in solution.  Furthermore, their low molecular weight facilitates penetration into plants. 

The use of fulvic acids in agriculture improves the structure of soil, retaining moisture, encouraging aeration of the root and providing the plant with nutrients including nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, magnesium, sulfur and micronutrients.  It contributes to the conversion of minerals from non-assimilable to soluble form through the release of carbonic gas.  

Likewise, fulvic acids have a positive effect on the growth and development of crops due to an increased extraction of macro- and micronutrients and, on a biochemical level, they increase permeability of membranes. All of the above leads to the following benefits: 

  • An improvement in soil structure

  • An increase in fertility

  • A biostimulant effect.


 

Benefits:

We can classify the great benefits of fulvics acids in those which  have a positive effect on the growth and development of crops and those which improves the structure of soil. 

The fulvic acids positive effect on the growth and development of crops is due to an increased extraction of macro- and micronutrients, as well as an increase of the membranes permeability, on a biochemical level; these characteristics lead to the following advantages: 

  • An increase in photosynthesis and ventilation. In other words the speed of catching light is increased, which encourages a larger production of sugars.

  • An improvement in the transport of nutrients, making them available in the areas where the plant needs them.

  • An increase in the synthesis of proteins and nucleic acids, which will facilitate the action of enzymes formed with some amino acids and micronutrients.

  • An increase in absorption.

  • Contributes to an increased exploitation of water by the plant.


TEST OF SPEED OF PENETRATION

Absortion after 68 minutes

      1.- Foliar Fertilizer 500 ppm              2.- Foliar Fertilizer 500 ppm
                                                           + fulvic acids 150 ppm

     

1.- Initial Time                       2.- After 68 minutes
                                                The absortion has been completed



Likewise, the use of fulvic acids in agriculture improves the structure of soil, retaining moisture, encouraging aeration of the root and providing the plant with nutrients including nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, magnesium, sulfur and micronutrients.  It contributes to the conversion of minerals from non-assimilable to soluble form through the release of carbonic gas. 



  • An increase in fertility, as soil that has a low level of organic material can increase microbial life by up to 2000 times in just two weeks.

  • An improvement in soil structure through the flocculation of clay in order to form blocks that facilitate the circulation of water and air around the root.

  • An increase in the movement of ions allowing them to be absorbed by the plant.

  • Shock-absorbing effect of the pH through the slow release of stored nitrogen.  This is extremely important since an excess of acidity will make ions insoluble, as is the case with boron and an opposing variation of the pH, in other words an alkaline pH will burn the plant.

  • Soil toxins are neutralized if a pesticide has contaminated the soil, leaving it in acceptable conditions for the plant.

  • Applied in small amounts, they produce a significant increase in the production of dry material, which will lead to a stronger plant.

  • An improvement to radical elongation, the arrangement of lateral and adventitious roots, radicular and absorbent hairs.  In other words, it stimulates radicular growth allowing the plant to better absorb water as well as nutrients.

Furthermore, fulvic acids are an excellent food for mycorrhizal fungus, which have an increased radicular development as well as providing excellent protection for pathogenic fungi.
