Eco Root made up of Combination of Humic acid and Fulvic acid. Humic acid and Fulvic acid are natural plant deposits found in oxidised coal called leonardite. The Humic acid molecules are too large to be absorbed by the plant, while the Fulvic acid is a smaller size, allowing it to be taken up by the plant. The Humic acid works in your soil to break down soil particles, increasing aeration, increasing water retention, boosting microbial activity and repairing damage made by chemical fertilizers. The Fulvic acid works in the plant to increase the pore sizes of the root system, enabling the plant to take up more and larger nutrients that are available in the soil.
By supplying the soil with sufficient humic acid, we help to bind cations (positively charged elements). The ability to chelate positively charged multivalent ions (Mg, Ca, Fe and other “trace minerals” of value to plants) is probably the most important role of humic acid, with respect to your soil. By chelating the ions, humic acid facilitates the uptake of the ions by means of several mechanisms, one of which is preventing their precipitation (leaching through the soil). Another is the direct and positive influence on their bio-availability. It can also detoxify the soil of heavy metals. Research has shown that heavy metals can be “locked up” with the addition of humic acid.
