Humus has been known and discussed for centuries. Humates and humus are related. The references to “humus” date back more than a millennium when it generally referred to the soil itself. Over time, “humus” referred to organic matter of soils, composts or other aspects of organic matter. Today, humus refers to decomposed organic matter. Humus is a complex, formed in soils, composts, peat bogs and parts of plant residues. Solid organic matter represents several types of humus in an advanced state of decomposition produced by plant residues from eons ago and thereafter superimposed by layers of mineral matter. Solid organic matter formation is a process where decomposed plants and animals turn to humus, change to peat, then to lignite, because of tremendous concentration of living bacteria which convert the organic matter to humic acids. Humate is a compressed, natural organic humus, containing most of the known trace elements necessary for the development of plant life. This may be because eons ago, humus itself was plant life. Organic materials and substances play an important part in the formation of fertile soil due to the fact that they are a source of plant nutrients. Organic matter has also a significant effect on the water-holding capacity of many soils and plays a role in the plants’ abilities to consume nutrients from the soil. Legions of studies demonstrate that organic compounds such as humate have a definite and positive effect on the growth and development of plants. The positive effects of adding organic matter to soil have been recognized for centuries. There is a wide body of scientific theory that concludes humus influences soil fertility through its effect on water holding capacity. From humus soil, three separate types of acid can be separated, humic, fulvic and ulmic. Together, these compounds comprise “humate.” Humate can be utilized as a soil conditioner and soil supplements. It acts chemically with soils, whether alkaline or acidic, to protect plant roots from excessive amounts of soluble fertilizers placed too close to the seed at planting. It also has the same effect on growing plants when applied as a side or top dressing.

Organic foods and organic agriculture are quickly producing ever-greater interest from the consuming public. The increased consumer demand has spurred organic industries to develop across the United States. The advanced demand partly responds to widespread use of synthetic chemicals in the growing and handling of food products and the overuse of pesticides. Consumers have lost confidence in the corrupted use of such substances, which still all have unknown effects on the human systems. Meanwhile, once-rare or undiscovered diseases and disorders explode and become commonplace. Total U.S. sales of organic food and non-food products were nearly $28.7 billion in 2010, a 9.7-percent hike from 2009, according to the 2011 Organic Industry Survey, a report produced by the Organic Trade Association. The report also finds U.S. sales of organic food and beverages have increased to $26.7 billion in 2010, from just $1 billion in 1990. The 2010 figure represents a 7.7-percent increase over 2009 sales. Organic fruits and vegetables saw the most growth, an 11.8-percent rise from 2009, OTA report states. Humate, a natural, organic compound, should be a key part of the organic crop production system and your own organic plan. In 1990, Congress enacted the Organic Food Productions Act (“OFPA”) which can be found at 7 U.S.C. § 6501, et seq. The OFPA responded to problems in the organic industry, at the request of its trade associations, which had attempted to establish national voluntary organic certification programs. Needless to say, voluntary agreements of such broad fields are difficult to develop and reaching consensus on national standards is even more difficult. But, Congress, in response to organic industry trade association petitions, established a mandatory national organic program through the OFPA. The purposes of the OFPA as set forth in § 2102 (7 U.S.C. § 6501) are to:
- Establish National standards governing the marketing of certain agricultural products as organically produced products;
- Assure consumers that organically produced products meet a consistent standard; and
- Facilitate commerce in fresh and processed foods that are organically produced.
The organic food and beverage industry has grown dramatically in recent years from approximately $1 billion in 1990 to $26.7 billion in 2010, according to the Organic Trade Association. Also highlighting the organic revolution, organic-crop and livestock land production has expanded from approximately 914,800 acres in 1995, to more than 4.8 millon acres in 2008 and is expected to keep growing, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The USDA also finds that by 2008 there were 12,941 certified organic farm and livestock operations, not including subcontractors, up from 8,493 just three years earlier. U.S. exports of organic products totaled $1.7 billion in 2009. The European Union, which accounts for 20 percent of the world’s organic land has also seen explosive growth in organic land use, and it is increasing even in the midst of austerity measure being enacted among the 27 member countries. Japan is also growing its organic industries. Organic products are able to command premium prices not only in the United States but worldwide. Don’t be left behind; humate should be a part of your organic plan.Natural Gardening
As the world becomes ever more complex, with more and more synthetic compounds and processes, individuals are returning to natural gardening in their homes, their backyards and their neighborhood lots. Humate, as natural organic compound, is an important part of the natural gardening system. We suggest that natural gardeners make inquire to U-Mate International relating to our products such as New-Mex U-Mate™, New-Mex Humate, Bio-U-Mate™ and www.humate.com™ compounds and products.
The best organic Fertilizer is Humate. Humate provides energy and nutrition source to beneficial organisms that influence plant health and soil fertility Enhances aeration of soil and increases water retention of heavy and compact soils. Humate can also be mixed with compost to achieve your desired gardening/commercial crop growth results you want while remaining 100% organic.
It is widely recognized that humic substances promote the conversion of a number of elements into forms for optimal up-take by plants. Indeed, some studies suggest that the amount of humic acid contained within a humus substance is directly related to plant development. In the production of fertile soil, organic substances play a direct role because they are the source of plant nutrients that liberated in soluable forms during mineralization. Action of humic substances is important: Humic substances actively participate in decomposition of rocks and minerals. While there are many credible reports and studies that show the positive effects of humic materials in a number of aspects, they operate best as soil additives rather than replacements of the essential elements of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. The use of humate builds up humus content in soil. Generally, subsequent fertilization can be reduced when soil becomes ever more fertile, creating such healthy conditions, they reduce necessary reliance on pesticides and insecticides. Humate is a totally natural, organic product and has no chemical additives. The positive impacts on seed germination, plant growth and development and increased mineral content all have been demonstrated in studies by some of the world’s most credible scientists. Stated another way: Humate and humic substances are not fertilizer substitutes; instead, they act as soil supplements and additives where adequate supplies of major nutrients, like nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium exist. Humate contains most of the known trace elements necessary for development of plant life because in its original state, it was living, breathing plants. Organic humate enhances root development, increases water retention potential and promotes chelation, a process by which insoluble matter is gradually processed for plant utilization. As a result, humate contains valuable plant nutritional substances not found in chemical fertilizers. As a whole, a consensus of scientific studies reveals that humate can be utilized as a soil conditioner and soil supplement under various conditions and climates. And although humate is not a substitute for fertilizer, the positive effects of its processes on can reduce the need for certain fertilizers, provides other essential elements not in fertilizers and can even reduce the amounts of water necessary for healthier, stronger crops and plants. Humate can also be processed into humic acid that can be added to soil supplements or fertilizers.
Humate is an example of an organic fertilizer. Humate is a mineral that is mined from earth. It is an early stage in the development of coal from organic matter. Humate is rich in humic and fulvic acids, which are active components of soil humus, hence the name humate.
One need only pick up the newspaper to read articles about the increasing demand for organic fruits and vegetables. The public is demanding more organic foods and less artificial and synthetic preparations. A trip to the grocery store reveals that people will pay more for organic foods. This indicates both the greater value organic foods hold to our health and the resulting consumer demand, and a misconception that organic foods cost more or are more difficult to produce. Humate, fully organic, with zero additives, and benign aside from its positive values, undoubtedly forms an important link in the organic food chain. As more varied applications are undertaken for different crops and soil remediation operation, humate will find an increasing role in the future. Humate is nature’s soil additive, the planet’s own way of repairing itself, and it is 100-percent organic.
Humate, bark, compost, and sand to improve draining. Use these all together for the ultimate garden or commercial growing.
Humate is applied at the rates of 200-600 pounds per acre, depending on soil conditions, climate conditions and the particular crop. The applications are recommended in two to four equal applications from early spring through fall during normal crop treatment cycles. The application should be included with normal and regular fertilization programs. Various applications have also been tried effectively with humate in solution and liquid application.
