Humate Solutions LTDCropping / Pasture Products
Our products all use Raw Humate. Raw humate (up to 67% carbon) is especially applicable for farmers and growers who wish to build up their carbon soil content as well as to increase their soil biology. Humate is widely accepted as the world’s oldest form of compost and is very rich in carbon, humic and fulvic acids.
Produce thicker, greener and healthier foliage stimulates seed germination and viability produce more, larger longer lasting and beautiful flowers Humates are bio-stimulants. Almost anything that grows will benefit from applications of humates. For healthy garden soil, FarmMate Boost liquid is the key!
What can FarmMate Boost liquid do for my garden?
FarmMate Boost liquid can provide immediate benefit to plants and also improve soil conditions as they are natural chelators or “claws” that hold onto nutrients and water in the soil. FarmMate Boost liquid can hold onto all nutrients and raise your CEC for maximum nutrient holding capacity. Liquid Humates can be used as a soil amendment, a foliar spray, and a fertilizer enhancer.
Humic acid plays an important role in promoting plant growth and root development. Humic acid can help to promote better seed germination, healthier plants, and improved yields. FarmMate Boost liquid mixes well with other products and help to breakdown fall crop residues. They can help to break up compacted soil, enhancing water penetration and better root zone growth and development. As a chelating agent, it optimizes any fertilizer program and may reduce future nutrient requirements. FarmMate Boost liquid assist in reducing nutrient leaching and salinity build up in soils and can help stimulate healthy microbial activity in the soil.
For information on the application rate, take a look at our Application Rate Guide.
Pasture: General application rate: 15-30 litres per hectare
Dairy farmers and horticulturists may choose to use the higher rates at more frequent intervals. Water rate will vary depending on the application equipment and may range from 1:1 up to 1:50. Discuss dilution rates with your local agent or applicator.If in doubt, test a small area first. As with all FarmMate products, leaf burn is unlikely and lower water rates are possible. However, we strongly advise that diluted product is applied to grass, either mornings or evenings, and not in the heat of the day.
