Introducing UltraMate LQ®

We are happy to announce the expansion of our humic product line to include UltraMate LQ — a sulfonated potassium humate liquid.

UltraMateLQ_ProductShotZoomWebUltraMate LQ completely mixes when added directly to liquid fertilizer, micronutrient or pesticide formulations over a wide range of pH values. The compatibility of UltraMate LQ allows the user to apply this humate using application methods which are unacceptable for conventional products—directly into tank mixes, drip irrigation and onto acid soils.

UltraMate LQ allows plants to utilize applied N, P, and micronutrients more efficiently, reducing leaching and improving soil structure.

UltraMate LQ provides the following benefits:

    • Wide range of pH compatibility: 2-12
    • Compatible with liquid fertilizer, micronutrient or pesticide formulations
    • Wide range of application methods: foliar spray, soil application, drip irrigation, water run or hydroponically
    • Up-front availability of humic and fulvic acids
    • Increases seed germination and nutrient availability

Application Information
UltraMate LQ can be used in both soil and foliar applications, at 1-3 gal/acre. For more detailed application information, click here.
