Soil Amendments

Humic Acids

Humic matter is formed through the microbial breakdown of plant and animal matter. The main component of humic matter, are the humic acids, which contain both humic and fulvic acids.

Uptake products are a natural way to provide plants and soils with a concentrated dose of essential nutrients, vitamins and trace elements that are normally not provided by typical fertilization. Considered the best source of humic acid is the sedimentary layers of soft brown coal, which is known as Leonardite. Among the varieties of Leonardite available, North Dakota Leonardite is thought to be among the richest in those essential nutrients providing the highest beneficial plant impact. All Uptake products are derived from North Dakota Leonardite.
