Regarded as some of the best biostimulant products available, these two acids are essential in both soil and especially hydroponic gardens. Acting as intermediate chelators, they are a part of a healthy soil ecosystem and work together with soil-based nutrients to increase absorption while performing a number of other tasks to help ensure maximum yield.
What are the benefits of Fulvic and Humic Acids?
Both of these acids are known to improve mineral and nutrient uptake, but they also have been shown to increase plant size in terms of both height and yields. On top of this, they also improve the plant’s resistance to disease and environmental stress.
What is the difference between fulvic and humic acids?
Humic acids are larger molecules, and are great for conditioning the soil, whereas fulvic acids are smaller and more biologically active. Fulvic acids are best used as a foliar spray and are faster acting. Most of these products are a combination of humic and fulvic acids, to get the best of both worlds.
