Humic Acids  


Biochemical and physiological process

Humic substances influence several metabolic processes such as photosynthesis, respiration, nucleic acid synthesis and ion uptake. Humic acid influences the production of RNA, which is essential for many biochemical processes in the cell. Humic acid also stimulates the activities of some enzymes.

Foliar application

Foliar application of humic acid solution stimulated the photosynthetic capacity of creeping bentgrass, particularly during the summer when photosynthetic activity had declined because of environmental stress.

Antioxidant activity

Studies showed that foliar application of humic acid on turfgrass significantly enhances the presence of various antioxidants in leaves.


Research has shown that materials with hormonal activity, such as humic substances, stimulate production of antioxidants and enhance photosynthetic activity, resulting in greater turfgrass tolerance of abiotic and biotic stresses, including infection.

Therefore, using humic substances that reduce the impact of environmental stresses could be a valuable component of an integrated pest management strategy in turfgrass culture. 

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.
