A four-ton application of Humalfa Standard fertilizer provides the following benefits:

  1. 2000 pounds of organic matter
  2. 700 pounds of Humus
  3. Carbon, Iron, and Trace Minerals
  4. All of the essentials for plant growth including Humic Acid


Under US Composting Council standards our product tests consistently show “very stable” results. What this means is the nitrogen and other plant nutrients will reside in your soil until utilized by your crops and these nutrients will not be lost to evaporation or leaching.

In research from ATTRA News, Volume 16, Number 6 – December 2008 they published an article, “Soil Organic Matter “Banks” Water for the Future by Rex Dufour, NCAT Technical Specialist. In part he wrote, “Soil holds water according to its texture. However, the level of organic matter also determines how much water a particular soil can hold.

For every 1 percent of organic matter content, the soil can hold roughly 16,500 gallons of plant-available water per acre of soil down to 1 foot deep. That is roughly 1.5 quarts of water per cubic foot of soil for each percent of organic matter.

As global warming takes hold, all computer models predict that there will be periods of greater rainfall intensity as well as drought. Farmers can prepare their farmland for this by increasing the percentage of organic matter in their soils. Well-tested techniques to do this are no-till, minimum till, compost applications, crop rotations, and cover crops and green manures. All these techniques help build soil health and soil organic matter, which in turn will allow for greater infiltration of the rain that does fall, reducing erosion and increasing the moisture-holding capacity of the soil.

Particularly during low-rainfall years, farmers who have good levels of organic matter in their soils will maintain better yields compared to their neighbors with low soil organic matter and low soil moisture-holding capacity.”
