What makes Humates so Great
Consisting of Humic Acid and Fulvic Acid, humates are now recognized as the single most productive input in sustainable agriculture. Humates are the only known substance that have the ability to capture and chelate (claw) more than any other nutrient known to mankind. Chelating agents are micro light molecules that can trap and encapsulate other nutrients, then easily penetrate cells releasing the nutrients quickly into the roots and leaves. When applied directly to soil leaves, or via hydroponics, Dutch Science Nutrients enhances the uptake of all present ingredients including nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (N-P-K).
Humic and Fulvic Acid is a combination of prehistoric organic substances from decomposition of plant and animal tissues that have been compressed over millions of years deep into the earth's soil to form concentrated rich macro and micro minerals. Humates are extracted from the earth, then refined for use in agriculture and horticulture.
