For the first time, the useful properties of humic acids wereMore than 50 years ago. They contribute to the rapid growth of almost all plant species, the strengthening of their root system. Today such fertilizers as humate of potassium, containing humic acids, are actively used in agriculture.
Potassium humate is a natural fertilizer thatMade of peat. This makes it so useful for plants. It contains amino acids, natural antibiotics and other trace elements necessary for growth and increase in yield.
Effects of the application of potassium humate
Microelements contained in potassium humate,Allow to improve the soil on which the plants grow. It becomes more fertile, its chemical and physical properties improve. Humic acids react with microelements (magnesium, calcium and others), creating pores of air, due to which the soil "breathes". Also, this fertilizer prevents soil erosion.
Particularly useful is the use of potassium humate onSandy soils. The main difficulty in their cultivation is that the moisture in them does not stay long. The abundance of trace elements contained in the fertilizer makes it possible to gradually get rid of this problem.
Potassium humate has another interesting pointView of chemistry property. It is capable of neutralizing heavy metals, radioactive substances and any of their compounds. After such interaction, all harmful substances are excluded from the plants. Gradually the soil will become ecologically clean, the plants - healthy, and the harvest is large. All this will sharply increase the profits of rural households. That is why potassium humate is actively used by developed countries.
Application of potassium humate
Spraying is the easiest way to useHumate of potassium. To prepare a working solution, you need to mix 3 grams of fertilizer and 10 liters of water. This method saves a lot of time: just a couple of sparks on each leaf of your plant. Do not increase the concentration of potassium humate. Despite the fact that the fertilizer is natural, in large quantities it can damage the plant.
To water your seedlings with a solution of humatePotassium, you can prepare the concentrate. To do this, dissolve 10 tablespoons of fertilizer in a liter of warm water. Keep the resulting mixture in a dark place for not more than a month. It is added to ordinary water and watered plants immediately after planting, during budding, and then, when flowering occurs.
Dry soil is used for soil disinfectionPotassium. You just need to spill it on a plot of land in a ratio of 50 grams per 10 m? And walk several times with a rake to loosen the soil. Experienced farmers do this in early spring.
