Understand This First…
Neither humic acid or biochar contain nutrients and they can not cause harm to your lawn from over application like a fertilizer. Again… they contain NO NUTRIENTS. So feel free to apply them ANY TIME… in ANY AMOUNT…. and as OFTEN as you want.
Lawns and Turf
Apply HumiChar™ anytime during the growing season to lawns. Since the product can NOT cause burning damage you can apply very heavy if desired. The general rate of application is 5 – 10 pounds per 1000 square feet of turf / lawn. Feel free to apply often during the season as biochar is a long BUILD UP process. The rate can be reduced in subsequent years as the biochar will remain in the soil for 100s of years.
New Lawns and Sod
Whenever possible it’s a GREAT idea to TILL Humichar into the soil BEFORE the planting of seed and laying of sod. WHY? Because this is the ONLY chance you will have to get it deep into the soil quickly. The rest of the time you will be top applying the product. Our recommendation is to get a soil test done, then apply Humichar and fertilizer. TILL the soil and proceed with installation as normal. The LONG TERM benefits is what you seek. Keep in mind, the use of Pre-Emergents is NOT reccomended for the first 12 months of new seed and sod. It inhibits root growth and should NOT be apply. You can apply Humichar VERY heavy at this point as it will be mixed with the soil.
Gardens and Landscaping Beds
It’s best, most effective, to keep HumiChar™ focused in the general root zones and plant growth area. Apply around the plants or work into the soil. Our testing was done with roughly 1/2 cup of material per plant base area. Learn how to ACTIVATE the biochar in the upcoming video.
