How does HUMUSON COMPLEX work in the soil?

The natural composition of HUMUSON COMPLEX allows it to act through the following mechanisms of action: it’s adaptogenic, it’s chelating, it increases the absorbtion and bioavailability of phyto-nutrients, and it increases symbiosis with the natural micro-organisms in the soil.

 

Absorption and Chelation

HUMUSON Complex contains strong and absorbent humified carbon, which keeps nutrients in the topsoil, allowing plants to use these nutrients in larger quantities. Large molecules of humic acids bind heavy metals and radionuclides in the topsoil, removing them from the active circulation in the soil, and preventing them from getting into plant tissue. Small molecules of humic acids chelate nutritional elements and increase their bioavailability.


Symbiosis


HUMUSON COMPLEX contains water-soluble carbon, amino acids, and vitamins that facilitate the development and growth of soil macro and microorganisms such as PGB group bacteria and positive soil fungi. This helps nitrogen fixation, cellulose fermentation, and butyrate producing bacteria, along with ammonifiers and a host of other micro-organisms that play a vital role in the nutrition and growth of plants.


 

Humin provides a substrate for the development of soil bacteria and microorganisms, even in soils with low organic content.


 

The activation of soil macro and microorganisms increases the speed at which elements cycle in the soil, which increases the diversity and bioavailability of plant nutrients.


 

In combination with the improvement of the plant's transport system, all of the above greatly aid the natural symbiotic relationship between soil microorganisms and the plant.

 

Adaptogenic


HUMUSON Complex contains a large concentration of Humates, like humin, humic acids, and fluvic acid. Their mechanism of action is the stimulation of all growth processes in plants, both during seed germination and root formation, and later during the whole cycle of plant growth and development. Humates alter cell membrane permeability, boost fermentation activity, increase chlorophyll content, enhance photosynthesis productivity, and stimulate tissue respiration and protein synthesis.


Humates react and bind with various ecotoxicants that enter the soil as dust, ashes, rain, and adulterants within mineral fertilizers. What takes place is the irreversible binding of heavy metals and radionuclides into insoluble, complex compounds, which are subsequently taken away from the circulation of elements of the soil. This prevents these toxins from finding their way into the food we eat. Additionally, the fact that soil microflora activity is super-charged by humates also helps to degrade toxic organic compounds. At the same time, organic eco-toxins like pesticides, hydrocarbons, phenols, and aldehydes are effectively absorbed by humates, which reduces their toxicity to both plants and humans.

 

The combination of all these benefits restore the natural adaptogenic properties of the plants. And these mechanisms help plants to adapt to unfavorable climate conditions.
