- Though the exact mechanism of action is still unclear, it is believed that humic acid benefits plant growth directly by improving nutrient uptake via hormonal action
- Humic substances, including both humic and fulvic acid, are one of the largest constituents of soil matter and are therefore considered a key component of the ecosystem
- Some evidence links humic acid with auxin-like activity which results in the stimulation of growth
- Humic acid has been proven to increase uptake of numerous essential nutrients from soil and has shown significant increases in growth and yield (upwards of 40%)
- Humic acid has even been shown to increase the post-harvest vase life of cut flowers and decreased their post-harvest weight loss
