Put Life Back Into the Soil
Due to intensive farming practices over time, we began to lose natural humic substances in the soil. These humic substances are the horsepower behind soil nutrient availability. They help mobilize nutrients from the soil to the plant and have been proven to enhance plant growth. By adding the right humic product from a proven ore source to your fertilizer applications, you can maximize soil-applied nutrition and improve yield potential.
Humic products can supply the soil with beneficial and all-natural, plant-available humic acids – the most active portion of organic matter. Plants grown in soils containing adequate humic substances are known to be healthier and less subject to stress. They produce higher yields with superior nutritional quality. That’s because humic substances create more ideal soil conditions and improve nutrient efficiency. They alleviate issues such as compacted soils, high salts and sodium, and poor water-holding capacity and penetration. They also reduce nitrogen leaching and help prevent volatilization into the atmosphere. By preventing tie-up and releasing soil-bound nutrients, humic products allow you to get more value from your fertilizer investment. Rather than applying more fertilizer in higher concentrations, the right humic product will make the nutrients you deliver to the soil more readily available for uptake.
However, not all humic products produce the same results. A variety of factors such as mining and processing can impact humic quality. Plus, many humic granule products have been known to produce excess dust, mixing problems, and inconsistent distribution. Despite their overwhelming benefits, these handling and application issues have limited the widespread use of humic products in the past.
To overcome the limitations of conventional humic products, Helena Agri-Enterprises, LLC introduced Resurge, an exclusive, low-dust humic granule made from the highest-quality humic ore source available. Resurge is engineered with a uniform shape and size for even distribution in the fertilizer blend and across the acre. The consistent sizing ensures better flowability through fertilizer equipment and improves compatibility with all types of dry fertilizers, including urea. Resurge breaks down quickly in the soil and holds nutrients in the root zone longer to deliver stronger in-season crop results.
If your soil is running low on horsepower, chances are, a loss in humic substances is to blame. To put life back into your soil this season, talk to your local Helena representative to learn more about Resurge and our complete line of quality humic products, including Hydra-Hume and Fertilink.
