Why it's important to find the right humic material for your farm.

Perhaps you have heard of humic material and are interested in giving it a try on your farm. Or, perhaps you have used some type of humic and fulvic acid soil additives in the past, and want to continue to enjoy stronger, healthier growth in future seasons.

Farmer choosing humics

Either way, it's important that you find the right humic material for your farm.

Almost any kind of humic matter is going to help you be more profitable, since it enriches soil nutrients, makes it easier for plants to absorb water, and regulates pH levels. However, there are important differences between different humic soil additives – and the companies that provide them – that you should bear in mind when looking for the right one:


With more than 80% humic acid content, Black Earth dry products offer the strongest humic material available anywhere in North America. That's important, because it isn't unusual to find other companies offering soil additives that aren't as strong and tend to be less cost-effective.


Does it matter where your humic material comes from? It does if you're interested in getting the biggest return from your investment. Ours is unearthed from the plains of Alberta, one of the richest and most reliable sources on the planet.


There are two ways to look at pricing for humic acid soil additives: On the one hand, you certainly don't want to spend more than you have to. And on the other, it's important to buy horticultural products that are worth the money you're spending. Often, this requires a little bit of research.

Reputation and Results.

When it comes down to it, the best things we can say about our products are that you can tell that they are effective by speaking to our customers. For all the mention of things like humic acid and fulvic acid, or the applied research that goes into making Black Earth, the fact that other farmers will speak up for what we sell is the most important detail of all.

Customer Service.

Of course, as with any product or service, you want to buy soil additives from a company that stands behind their products and will be there when you need them to answer a question or offer assistance.
