Many fertiliser products under the ‘biologicals’ banner have become mainstream inputs for broadacre cropping, pasture, horticulture, tree crops and vineyards. This reflects the significant productivity outcomes and benefits of biologicals when integrated with current fertiliser practices.
Humates are a long standing and well researched biological; a brown coal (lignite) based, carbon source containing high concentration of humic acid which has many benefits to offer in agricultural production. Lignites contain the highest concentration of naturally occurring humic acids.
To maximise on-farm benefits it is important to consider humates physical characteristics for ease of application and secondly, solubility for immediate reactivity. Both can vary significantly within the range of humate products available.

What is Humic
Humic (or humic acid) is a component of soil organic carbon, it is present naturally in soils. Healthy, productive soils have a higher humic content.
How does humic work in the soil?
