As crop growers face increasing economic and environmental pressure, interest in ‘plant stimulants’ grows
Economic and environmental pressure to reduce use of mineral fertilisers, pesticides and herbicides is increasing interest in the use of ‘plant stimulants’, predominantly humic-based organic products that have a positive effect on plants and the soil they inhabit. Humic substances have been used by growers for many years, but a new generation of humic-based products designed for large scale application with major crop types like cereals, fruits, vegetables, trees, grasses, flowers and vines is now available.
There is a compelling case for the adoption of these advanced organic stimulants. Products like HumicGrow, when combined and applied with regular inputs increase yield, aid water retention and improve soil conditions.
From an environmental standpoint, over time, the outcome is increasingly productive crops, that are more adaptive to extreme weather conditions, and a healthier growing environment less dependant on chemicals.
HumicGrow products comprise a highly concentrated mixture of humic and fulvic substances combined with non-traceable nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, including core microelements like calcium, sulphur, magnesium and macronutrients like boron, chlorine, manganese, iron, zinc, copper and molybdenum – key elements for plant nutrition.
HumicGrow is applied in routine irrigation and with fertilisers; biological material; growth regulators and with crop treatments such as pesticides and fungicides. It requires no special skills; no extra labour; no specialised plant or machinery. More about application
Humic substances used in HumicGrow products are a natural way to provide plants and soils with a concentrated dose of essential nutrients, vitamins and trace elements that are normally not provided by typical fertilisation. More about humic substances.
Ultimately, reducing health risks from agriculture will require a shift to a more environmentally benign form of agriculture, one that uses fewer agricultural chemicals overall, minimizes ecological disruption, and reduces agriculture’s heavy demand for water.
