Humates are a highly decomposed organic material that is millions of years old and contains extraordinary properties that are important to plant growth. We have added the basic material to our PONDTABBS® formula and have been testing this new formula for the past two years. The growers who have used this have been getting outstanding results and comment on the larger and more vibrant blooms, as well as, stronger plants and tubers. Essentially, these humates increase the availability of the nutrients in the fertilizer making them easier for the plants to take up. Creating natural microbial activity enhances plant development and resistance to stress. We anticipate that in time we will see much stronger tubers that are producing more divisions for the commercial growers.
