Brookside Agra is now offering dry and liquid humates. Humates are a naturally occurring material rich in humic and fulvic acids, amino acids and sugars. Humates are said to store nutrients in the soil and then allow for better nutrient uptake by the plants. This helps boost soil microbial populations, increase water retention and reduce erosion.
Brookside Agra’s humates, which contain 12 percent concentration of beneficial humic and fulvic acids, are all-natural and OMRI certified for organic use. The product can hold 10 times its weight in water when mixed in the soil profile. As a result, crops require less irrigation, can better utilize natural moisture from rainfall and experience less stress during drought conditions, according to the company.
