Frequently asked questions

What is HumicGrow?

HumicGrow products are created from a highly concentrated mixture of humic and fulvic substances combined with non-traceable nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, including core microelements like calcium, sulphur, magnesium and micronutrients like boron, chlorine, manganese, iron, zinc, copper and molybdenum – key elements for plant nutrition.

Why should I use it?

HumicGrow increases plant quality and crop yield; replenishes depleted soils, and improves plant root systems by increasing root length, radius and density - benefits that would otherwise require increasing use of fertiliser. For the most part, it achieves this by breaking down nutrients into elements that are more available to plants, bonding them together and delivering them to the plant system with no losses.

Is it organic?

Yes. However, AgriSciences also supply HumicGrow ready-mixed with non-organic inputs.

What plant types benefit from it?

Cereal crops, grains, nuts, fruits, vegetables, trees, grasses, herbs, flowers and vines.

How is it applied?

Through seed and root soaking, foliar application, and through most forms of irrigation.

Can it be applied with other inputs?

Yes. HumicGrow is used on its own or in combination with fertilisers, pesticides and herbicides.

Is it a fertiliser?

No. HumicGrow doesn’t supply NPK but acts instead to increase its availability by collecting and binding its key nutrients together, delivering them efficiently into a plant’s system and then retaining them there.

What does it cost?

The typical end-user cost is USD34.50 to treat one hectare, but will vary according to the product type in use, the level of concentration, and the method of application.

Does it work with hydroponics?

Yes. It breaks down the nutrients in a nutrient solution into elements that are more available to plants and can help photosynthesis.

How does it improve soil?

HumicGrow cleans soil, immobilising heavy metals and other hazardous elements within the soil; it then retains all nutritious elements in the soil for a long time, preventing them from evaporating through humidity or being washed away by rain. It also nourishes dry soil with humus, turning it into a more fertile and effective platform for plant development.

By using humic-based products, like HumicGrow, growers have gradually reduced nitrogen and phosphate applications while improving overall crop quality and yields.
