Humates Done Your Way

Posted on October 02, 2020

Through fall aerification, overseeding, and general maintenance, our family of humate-based products is designed to help turf recover, boost fertilizer efficiency, and build long term soil health. 
Featuring granular, soluble, and liquid options, this line is designed with maximum flexibility in mind. Here are a few of our favorites:


Humic DG CharX is a 50/50 blend of humic acid and biochar in a dust-free, spherical, and dispersible granule. The Andersons Dispersible Granule (DG) technology allows each granule to break down into hundreds of thousands of small particles of humic acid and biochar after being exposed to water. The list of benefits that can be derived from using biochar is very similar to humic acid products like Humic DG™. Like humic acid, biochar is reported to improve soil characteristics in the following capacities:

  • Enhancing nutrient efficiency, retention, and cation exchange capacity
  • Enhancing soil structure, porosity, and water holding capacity
  • Reduces potential nutrient leaching in soils
  • Aids in amending acidic soils with a pH of 7.0
  • Provides a habitat and carbon food source for soil microorganisms



UltraMate SG is a sulfonated potassium, soluble granule humate product designed for use with tank mixes, liquid applicators, and fertigation. Featuring 70% humic acid, along with sulfur and potash, UltraMate SG quickly dissolves in a wide pH range, including both acidic and alkaline solutions. UltraMate SG is shipped as a concentrated soluble granule in easy-to-handle bags, reducing freight costs and increasing handling efficiency. Safe for all turf and soil types, UltraMate SG provides all of the benefits of humic acid, including enhanced macro and micronutrient availability, increased stress tolerance, and improved seed germination.




Like its soluble counterpart, UltraMate LQ liquid humate is a sulfonated potassium formulation. Featuring 12% humic acid content, UltraMate LQ delivers carbon, potassium, and sulfur, along with the up-front availability of humic and fulvic acids. It forms a complete solution when added directly to liquid fertilizer, micronutrient, or pesticide formulations over a wide range of pH values. Highly compatible, UltraMate LQ allows for application methods which are unacceptable for many conventional humic-based products, including tank mixing.
