How does American Humus™ decreases the need for chemical fertilizers?

  1. The high cation exchange capacity (CEC) and buffer capacity of American Humus™ increases nutrient availability to plants.
  2. As a cheating agent that slows the release of plant nutrients, American Humus™ reduces the leaching of chemical fertilizers.
  3. Reduced leaching allows the farmer to increase crop yields and soil fertility and decrease the use of inorganic chemicals fertilizers.

How does American Humus™ improve soil health?

  1. It helps break up compacted clay soils, allowing for enhanced water penetration and better root zone growth and development.
  2. It adds essential organic material necessary for water retention in sandy soils, thus improving root growth and enhancing the ability of sandy soil to retain vital plant nutrients.
  3. It mitigates the toxic effect of high salinity and high sodium content of soil on plants.
  4. It enhances the growth and proliferation of beneficial micro-organisms in soil.
  5. The buffer capacity of American Humus™ helps in balancing soil pH levels.

How does American Humus™ improve plant growth?

  1. It frees up nutrients in the soil so that they are made available to the plant as needed.
  2. It is able to chelate micro nutrients, thus increasing their bio-availability to plants.
