Often Imitated, Never Duplicated: Humic DG Fairway Blends

Posted by Ben Pease, Agronomist, PhD on April 27, 2022

Your fairways deserve the best. That’s why we’ve been combining select fairway fertilizers with our Humic DG™ for years.

What sets Humic DG apart? Humic DG (70% humic acid) granules feature our patented Dispersing Granule (DG) Technology, which creates a dust-free, dry particle that rapidly disperses into thousands of microparticles upon contact with moisture. This ensures a more efficient delivery of carbon, which enhances nutrient uptake, increases fertilizer efficiency, and improves soil structure. With a low moisture content and a resistance to breakage during handling, Humic DG is also significantly cleaner and easier to handle.

These characteristics stand in stark contrast to traditional screened humate products that are dusty, more difficult to handle, and much slower to break down.
