Higher yields, start with Humi[K]
The following application rates are general and should be used as a baseline for determining input costs.
We highly recommend taking soil samples and having a professional soil agronomist make an assessment.
Please let us know if you would like us to send a sample to your preferred lab for analysis. We are absolutely confident that our humic content analysis will out perform any competitor. Simply put, we'll put our Potassium Humate up against any competitor, at any lab, under any analysis method.

The Science: Dr. Mir-Mohammad Seyedbagheri
As a company, our science and product development is based heavily on Dr. Mir's many years of credible scientific research. We believe that in order to deliver a superior quality product, we have to follow the science of what works, what doesn't and why. Not only is Dr. Mir an exceptional agronomist, but his philosophy on agricultural sustainability is directly inline with our company and our vision.
Dr. Mir is a professor emeritus at the University of Idaho, specialized in soil science and agronomy, as well as biometeorology. He achieved academic recognition on the Dean’s and National Dean’s Lists when he was in graduate school, and as a member of Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society.
Mir has implemented countless ag-related projects nationally/internationally on salt remediation and crop production. He was a pioneer in humic substances research in Idaho and the Pacific Northwest. His research has been disseminated throughout the state, as well as nationally, and internationally. He was also invited to present on sustainable ag and organic farming at numerous national and international conferences.
Mir was raised on a farm. He has 36 years of applied research experience in conventional and sustainable ag farming, with an emphasis on soil health, plant, and water relationships. He has reviewed over 30,000 soil, plant tissue, and water analyses for organic and conventional farmers, the ag industry, and various international organic farm projects.
SYNTHETIC NITROGEN FERTILIZERS
One of the main reasons for the differences in soil carbon between organic and conventional systems is that synthetic nitrogen fertilizers degrade soil carbon. Research shows a direct link between the application of synthetic nitrogenous fertilizers and decline in soil carbon.
Scientists from the University of Illinois analyzed the results of a 50-year agricultural trial and found that synthetic nitrogen fertilizer resulted in all the carbon residues from the crop disappearing as well as an average loss of around 10,000 kg of carbon per hectare per year. This is around 36,700 kg of CO2 per hectare on top of the many thousands of kilograms of crop residue that is converted into CO2 every year. Researchers found that the higher the application of synthetic nitrogen fertilizer the greater the amount of soil carbon lost as CO2. This is one of the major reasons why most conventional agricultural systems have a decline in soil carbon while most organic systems increase soil carbon. Essentially, soils lost their " Stable" humic because of conventional agricultural practices. Which negatively impacted soils physical, chemical & biological functionalities.
