FULVIC ACID is the acid
radical found in humic matter, which is soluble in alkali, acid, methyl ethyl ketone, and methyl acid. Fulvic acids provide
multiple and natural chemical reactions in the soil, thereby instigating and stimulating unique and positive influences on
plants metabolic processes. Below is a summary list of the unique functions of fulvic acid
*Assistance in second germination and growth.
*Improved development of roots and shoots.
*Resistance of plants to fungal attack.
*Metal complexing and nutritional physiology.
*Enhanced uptake of nutrients. Stimulation of plant metabolism.
*Chelation and effects on the plant growth cycle.
*Positive effect on plant RNA and DNA.
*Catalysts in plant respiration.
*Increased metabolism of proteins.
*Increased activity of multiple enzymes.
*Enhanced permeability of cell membranes.
*Enhanced cell division and cell elongation.
*Aid to chlorophyll synthesis.
*Increased drought tolerance.
*Increased growth and yield of crops.
*Assist denitrification by microbes.
*PH buffering capacity.
*Special chemical affinity for balance.
*Participation in syntheses of new minerals.
*Chemical weathering or inorganic substances.
*Silicate decomposition by hydrogen ions of Fulvic acids.
*Aid in the creation of fertile new soil.
*Ability to scavenge heavy metals.
*Detoxification of various pollutants.
