Humic Acids  


Humates are very often applied in viticulture, especially – with increasing success – in ecological viticulture. 

According to the standards for organic viticulture, soil fertility must be restored by providing organic matter. The goal of this practice is to improve soil structure, soil biological activity, the ability to feed the plant and to increase the existence of competitive antagonists against soil-borne pathogens. 

Practices that do not provide organic matter lead to the degradation of the soil, causing problems of erosion. Consequently, the soil loses its physical structure, its existing nutrients and its biological activity.

The application of humates to the soil is an efficient way to increase the content of humic substances and thus of organic matter. The accumulation of humic substances in soils positively affects water holding capacity, temperature, and pH range, improving nutrient availability (e.g. Fe, P) and health maintenance against soil-borne diseases. 

In addition, humic substances provide a loose soil structure due to the formation of a clay-humus complex in combination with clay minerals. Therefore, root development and water infiltration are improved so that erosion can be reduced – as, for example, when vineyards are cultivated on slopes or during periods of heavy rainfall.


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.
