Fulvic acid is a part of the humic structure in rich composting soil. It is an acid created in extremely small amounts by the action of millions of beneficial microbes, working on decaying plant matter in a soil environment with adequate oxygen.It is of low molecular weight and is biologically very active. Because of its low molecular weight, it has the necessity and ability to readily bond minerals and elements into its molecular structure causing them to dissolve and become mobilized fulvic complexes. Fulvic acid usually carries 70 or more minerals and trace elements as part of its molecular complexes.
It stimulate plant metabolism and give positive effect on plant RNA & DNA. Fulvic acid chelates and binds scores of minerals into a bio-available form used by cells. These trace minerals serve as catalysts to vitamins within the cell. Additionally, fulvic acid is one of the most efficient transporters of vitamins into the cell.
Global fulvic acid market is expected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period due to increasing demand in agriculture sector. Agriculture industry extensively uses fulvic acid as a soil supplement for crops. The acid is an assortment of many acids that contain phenolate and carboxylate groups and is produced from dead organic matter biodegradation. It is also an important organic soil or humus constituent. The acid with low molecular weight is generally known as fulvic acid. Fulvic acid’s ability to penetrate leaf as well as cell mitochondria enables it to be used in foiler sprays and root drenches. Hence, increasing utility as a soil supplement in agriculture is anticipated to be a key factor driving the global industry growth over the forecast horizon.Any entrepreneur venture into this field will be successful.
