Humic Acids  


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 hydroponic 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 in other necessary nutrients in the solution to accelerate cell division more quickly. 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 continuously enhance the quantitative and qualitative yields. The dry matter of the plants is increased, which also positively affects the taste of fruits and vegetables. In addition, the quality of the fruits and their shelf life is extended. Our results from practice in different countries show the yield increase in 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 by up to 50 percent depending on the soil type. Thus, precious water is saved in arid areas. 

Increase of the nutrients' 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 percent and reduce the production costs substantially. The reduction of fertilizer saves the environment at the same time.


The profit from increased yields, improved fruit and vegetable qualities, and saved fertilizer costs definitely exceeds the application costs of HUMINTECH products. You can benefit economically and ecologically from the application of humic acid 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.
