Certified Organic Potassium Humate Fertiliser
Our Organic Potassium Humate has been tested in labs in Europe in order to determine its actual humic content as there are no testing labs in Australia that can perform it correctly.
Potassium humate is a concentrated liquid solution of soluble carbon materials it is extracted from an ancient form of compost known as humates the carbon in these materials has undergone a transformation producing unique molecules of carbon that can integrate and react with small particles to perform a number of different functions in Sandy soils.
These materials have the ability to penetrate deep in the profile coaching individual sand grains that can have a marketed effect on nonwetting conditions. In clay soils, the humate materials have “charged particles” on them that react with the “charged particles” on clay in the soil. They can have the effect of opening up compacted clay soil, these particles all these materials also react with mineral nutrients already present in the soil and from applied fertilisers rendering them mobile. Therefore so that they are not leached and can be stored for a later date for slow release.
Humate materials also act as an energy source for microbes in the soil and result in biostimulant properties
Building a solid bridge between all soil components.
What is it, What does it do, How does it work?
- It’s an ancient Hummus- 100% carbon
- It has the ability to penetrate sand and coat the sand granules – it is the next best thing to a soil wetter for existing gardens but you have to sue it monthly
- Once in the ground, it has the ability to hold onto fertilisers and releases them overtime
What are the Benefits
- Stimulates microbes, improving soil health
- River & ground safe
- Improves nutrient uptake
How To Use Potassium Humate
Use Organic Potassium Humate Fertiliser on a monthly basis. Every other week apply No Frills Fertilisers Organic Fish Fertiliser (“Hydrofish”) to provide added soil and plant health benefits. An important point to note here is that the area that one person’s watering can cover will differ from another person. Our application rates are based on one watering that can cover about 8-10 m2. The soil condition and stage of plant growth will also govern how much to use, but the key to using these organic concentrates is to ensure that:
- the plant leaves are covered to a point of runoff
- the soil area around the base of the plant has been showered
- water into the soil well if using the higher rate
- hose off any residue on leaves to prevent burning
Note: 1 level cap = 20ml. 1 standard watering can = 9 liters.
This is the most common way to use the product. Simply dilute into a watering can and apply to the plant leaves and soil surface.
Some people like to use handheld or backpack sprayers to apply their products. It is a very efficient way of feeding plants. A fine mist needs to be created so that leaf surfaces are covered. Simply dilute into a sprayer with water and cover leaf surfaces until runoff.
