Fulvic Acid and Humic Acid

The results speak for themselves

Fulvic acid is not named for it's PH, but for other qualities. The fulvic acid molecule has both a positive and negative electron in the outer shell allowing it to either accept or give up an electron. That makes it an excellent antioxidant. It has two main purposes in nature, it binds non beneficial elements so they are not available for plant uptake, and it makes beneficial nutrients soluble for ready plant uptake.

Fulvic acid is produced by microbes in the soil, but as we have over applied chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides, we have reduced the microbes' ability to replicate. Low levels of microbes reduces available nutrients for plants to uptake resulting in less than healthy plants and produce.
GroTerra™ is sourced from CDFA certified organic spent mushroom compost. It is extracted using no chemicals, so the nutrients are water soluble and immediately available to plants when applied as a foliar spray, or applied to soil to improve the environment for microbial replication in order to heal soil.

GroTerra™ also has naturally occurring Humic acid, another humate with soil amendment properties.

How Fulvic Acid works

• Fulvic Acid has two purposes in nature:
• It binds to elements which are detrimental to microbes and plants, rendering them benign
• It chelates beneficial nutrients and micronutrients so plants can absorb them
• Fulvic Acid is nature’s clean-up and feeding mechanism
• Fulvic Acid creates a better environment for microbes
• Fulvic Acid makes all nutrients, including NPK, more available to the plant

Fulvic Acid Mining Process

The Humic Acids (including Fulvic) are bound to the Ash (Leonardite) as insoluable Calcium Salts. Therefore to recover the Humic Acids requires not only a physical means of removing the clay and sand but also a chemical treatment to displace the Calcium Ion.

GroTerra™ is extracted from living composts using no chemicals.

Traditional Fulvic Acid

• Traditional Fulvic Acid is mined from Leonardite, or oxidized coal, requiring a strong alkaline of 12.5 PH, then a strong acid of 1.5 PH
• This strips all nutrients, leaving a 1.5 PH liquid Fulvic Acid concentrate, which limits it’s solubility with other fertilizers. Although it is a valuable addition to fertilizer programs, there is a better way.

Fresh Fulvic Acid

• Using a patented process, applied to fresh, high-quality compost that is prepared using unique methods, we have eliminated the need for chemicals
• Because the fresh Fulvic Acid molecule has not been subjected to high pressure and heat (as has Leonardite), it is extracted chemically free and is near neutral PH
• Neutral Fulvic Acid is much more absorbable by plants
• The non-chemical extraction process retains over 70 nutrients and micronutrients in a balanced condition immediately absorbable by plants•It is water soluble above 1 PH so it mixes readily with most fertilizers and chemicals


• Fresh Fulvic Acid applied at the rate of 1 gal per acre to 200 acres of a 500 acre field of sugar beets in mid-August resulted in sugar yield increase from 17.2% to 18.2% at harvest in mid-October
• Fresh Fulvic Acid applied to oat seed at the rate of 6 oz per bag resulted in a 13% increase at harvest
• Fresh Fulvic Acid applied to tomatoes at 10-day intervals at the rate of 1 gal per acre resulted in brix readings of 10.5
• Fresh Fulvic Acid applied to cherry fruit trees at the rate of .5 oz per gal 3 times during the growing season resulted in brix readings of 22

Grass from Seed

Water Only vs Water & Fresh Fulvic Acid

Grass is darker green, thicker, with more dense root structure and grows slower with the use of fresh Fulvic Acid
