Fulvic Acid

‘Fulvic acid’ (FA) is one of the most important and active humate extracts, it is water-soluble and is chemically active, and readily available for uptake by the plant.

Increases the absorption capacity of plant roots, aids the cell building process and enhances the passage of poorly transported ions into and throughout the plant’s cells by acting as an efficient organic chelator/complexing agent in hydroponic solutions.


  • Enhances cell growth
  • Increases nutrient uptake
  • Increases nutrient transportation
  • Increases silica absorption
  • Stimulates plant immune system
  • Stimulates cell division
  • Enhances the permeability of cell membranes

Fulvic acid forms four-point bonds with the elements it chelates and can be
absorbed into the plant.

This improves the mobility of nutrients. The nutrients chelated by fulvic acid can move more freely which prevents a number of conditions like localized calcium deficiency that can occur due to low mobility of nutrients.

FA is a short-chain molecule, which has a low molecular weight and is soluble in both
acidic and alkali solutions/soils.

FA is still effective when the growing environment in the root zone is above or below optimal levels. For this reason fulvic acid, more so than synthetic chelators (EDTA, DTPA), retains its effectiveness under a wider range of pH conditions.
