As hydroponic growing takes place in an enclosed environment, it is possible to cultivate plants with a better use of resources and a minimum of waste.
Humic acids in hidroponic systems
Generally speaking, there is no quick fix in the world of hydroponic growing. However, there is one additive which can improve the performance of the nutrient solution. Humic acids from highly oxidized lignite, due to the chelation /complexation process, can enhance the availability of nutrients to plants in the nutrient solution.
When nutrients are readily available to plants, photosynthesis is increased. Therefore, plants will be able to create and store more carbohydrates so that they can use all the energy needed to grow quickly. As a result, a well-developed root system with a larger volume of root hairs and feeder roots will enable the plant to take up faster other necessary nutrients in the solution to accelerate cell division. This will continue stimulating plant growth, resulting in an earlier harvest with an increased yield.
General Benefits of Humintech Products
Quantitative and qualitative yield increases
Regular application of high quality humic acids accumulates their effects in soils and enhances continuously the quantitative and qualitative yield increases. The dry matter of the plants is increased, which also affects the taste of fruits and vegetables positively. In addition the quality of the fruits and shelf life is extended. Our results from practice in different countries show the yield increase at different cultures.
Reduction of water demand
The accumulation of organic matter by humic acids binds the seeping water especially in sandy soils. Thereby the water demand can be reduced up to 50% depending on the soil type. Thus precious water is saved in arid areas.
Increase of the Nutrient`s efficiency
The addition of humic acids increase the fertilizer efficiency and the nutrient uptake by roots. Thus they can decrease the need of fertilizers up to 30% and reduce the production costs substantially. The reduction of fertilizer saves the environment at the same time.
The profit by increased yields, improved fruit and vegetable qualities and saved fertilizer costs exceed the application costs of Humintech products definitely. You can benefit economically and ecologically from the application of humic acids based products in the long term. They are a guarantee for successful yields in any kind of soil, at any place and with any cultivation method.
