Humate Soil Conditioner

Humate Soil Conditioner is am amazing organic soil treatment and microbe stimulant. One application of humate soil conditioner is the equivalent of applying ½ inch of a high quality organic compost over the surface of the lawn. Humate is one of Organo-Lawn’s most amazing lawn and tree care products, because of how much it builds the soil and how much easier and less expensive it costs compared to performing an organic compost top dressing.

What is Humate?

Humate Soil Conditioner is basically million year old organic matter that is mined from the soil. It has a positive effect on the physical, chemical, and biological reactions of the soil leading to an increase in soil fertility and microbial activity. Humate is comprised of Humic Acid and Fulvic Acid, which are proven to build organic matter in soils, stimulate beneficial microbial activity and Humate is a key component in building a living soil. Basically, humate is million year old organic matter that is very similar to coal but is loaded with organic compounds that will build organic matter in soils.

If the lawn is being watered deeply and infrequently and the lawn on an Organo-Lawn full season lawn care program the visual results after an application of humate soil conditioner will be a deep dark-green and lush lawn. Unlike lawn fertilizers, the organic soil treatment, Humate, will not cause the grass to grow any faster. Humate will make the color of the grass a dark green without causing it grow because Humate helps release beneficial nutrients from the soil that are unavailable to the grass. Humate releases the nutrients that are tied up like Nitrogen, Iron, Potassium, etc. These nutrients are often abundant in the soil, but are tied up or otherwise not available for the plant to uptake.

One or two applications of Humate Soil Conditioner per year is a must-do for lawns that have a heavy clay content in the soil.

FAQ - Humate

How to make a living soil?

  • Humate is “super” compost that stimulates beneficial microbial activity in the soil and builds soils that are alive and healthy. Beneficial microbes are just like people; they need air to breathe, water to drink, and food to eat. When Humate is used in conjunction with aeration (air) and proper watering, you can achieve a living soil.

Is Humate safe for my kids?

  • According to the Department of Agriculture we legally cannot claim anything is safe. They even say water is not safe! We can however, claim that Humate soil conditioner is 1,000,000 year old organic matter that is mined from the earth, which is non-toxic to people, pets and the environment. We are proud that Humate is considered to be edible and a fantastic non-toxic lawn care service.
