Humic Acid Can Promote Crop Root Growth
Humic acid has a special effect on crop root development, which mainly shows as the following,
In the first place, humic acid can affect root morphology at the cellular level and root configuration. It can stimulate the division and growth of root meristem cells and change cell size and type. Therefore, increase the number of lateral roots and absorbing pores to promote root. growth
The development of root makes the seedling root fast, increase the number of secondary roots and total amount of roots. In the meantime, the elongated roots increased the root density and surface area, which greatly promote the crops to absorb water and nutrients.
Second, Humic acid can promote the growth of crop roots by increasing the amount of plasma membrane H-ATPase, acidifying endosomes, loosening cell walls and promoting cell elongation.
Last but not least, Humic acid can also affect the species and quantity of basic microorganisms, so as to adjust the relationship with soil to improve crop root activity.
In order to achieve high yield and high efficiency, we need to take good care of crop root. The stimulating effect of humic acid on crop root growth is the driving force of its promoting effect on crop growth. The source, concentration, molecular weight, functional groups, heterogeneity, molecular structure and composition of humic acid can become the key factors affecting the growth and development of crop roots.
We must choose high-quality humic acid products in order to truly achieve root cultivation, protection and promotion.
