Humic Acid Market Trends

Increasing demand for humic acid in agriculture sector is driving the market growth

Market CAGR for Humic Acid is being driven by increasing demand for humic acid in agriculture sector. The demand for humic acid in the agriculture sector has been increasing in recent years due to its potential benefits for soil health and plant growth. Humic acid improves soil fertility by enhancing nutrient availability and uptake. It acts as a chelating agent, binding to essential nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, making them more accessible to plants. This helps optimize nutrient utilization and reduces nutrient leaching, leading to improved crop yields. Humic acid promotes root development, stimulates seed germination, and enhances plant growth. It aids in the formation of a favorable soil structure, allowing better root penetration and water infiltration. Additionally, humic acid stimulates beneficial microbial activity in the rhizosphere, leading to improved nutrient cycling and plant nutrient uptake.

Additionally, humic acid is compatible with organic farming practices since it is derived from natural sources and aligns with organic principles. Organic farmers are increasingly adopting humic acid-based products as part of their soil management strategies to improve soil health and optimize plant nutrition. The availability of humic acid-based products, such as humic acid fertilizers and soil amendments, has also contributed to the growing demand. These products are now more accessible to farmers through agricultural suppliers and retailers, making it easier for them to incorporate humic acid into their nutrient management programs.

October 2023

Leading provider of CleanTech solutions for the environment, Progressive Planet Solutions Inc., will introduce to the market this autumn a brand-new, all-natural soil conditioner that may be used on up to 1,355 acres. After CARBONTM PK, Progressive Planet's second patented product under the CARBONTM brand is CARBONTM Ca.

In Western Canada, 61 metric tons of CARBON Ca were sold for broadacre application during the product's original manufacturing cycle. Progressive Planet is currently strategically commercializing a patented chemical fertilizer replacement product for both spring and autumn applications, with CARBON PK and CARBON Ca, respectively, along with the introduction of a fall-application soil conditioner.

The trade-secret mixture of natural components known as CARBON Ca enriches soil with fulvic acid, humic acid, calcium, and carbon (humin). For plants to remain healthy and to produce food with more nutritional content, calcium is necessary. The goals of carbon (humin), humic acid, and fulvic acid are to enhance the physical characteristics of the soil and increase the availability of nutrients, which will enhance plant production and raise carbon residue levels, which in turn may raise the amount of carbon stored in soil organic matter. The results of preliminary third-party testing of CARBON Ca indicate an increase in available calcium in a water-soluble form of up to 187%. The company will seek measurements, validation, and support from third parties for carbon sequestration by evaluating any increases in soil organic matter and soil organic carbon.
