Spray Adjuvant

This product is most recognized for its residue decomposing abilities using bacteria. As plant material decomposes, lignin accumulates which is an important ingredient of humus. In the process of humification, lignin unites with proteins forming a lignin proteinate complex. This renders the protein very resistant to microbial attack. Thus, nitrogen in humus is retained and only slowly released. Humus itself under-goes slow decomposition so that in well aerated soils receiving normal additions of organic material, its level remains fairly constant. This slow decomposition is of great practical importance. It provides a means whereby nitrogen, as well as simple mineral compounds, can be stored in the soil and release gradually for plant consumption. Z-Hume also serves very productively when applied in furrow with starter fertilizer. Re-establishing microbial activity is important and is exactly what occurs when Z-Hume is applied at planting.
