Ferbon’s Bio-humate range of Soil Conditioners are based on special technologies for maximising the benefits of ancient composted plant life with its inherent high levels of concentrated humic acids. All Ferbon Bio-humate soil conditioners have a blend of biological additives, paramagnetic materials and a balance of various soil and plant nutrients. They are high in stable humus and humic acids, the “life force” of sustainable soil systems.

Ferbon Bio-humate Soil Conditioners are a feed source for soil microbes; organocarbon complexes give energy for microbes; microbes naturally lock up nitrogen in their bodies.

Ferbon Bio-humate Soil Conditioners;

  • have a very high CEC,
  • have high moisture retention
  • provide a very stable home for microbes
  • have effective life up to 3 years in the soil.

FF 50 Bio-humate Soil Conditioner:

A unique soil life enriching blended product especially formulated for commercial operators who are seeking to raise their soil’s fertility.

Much less labour and costs over time are experienced by using Ferbon’s FF50 Bio-humate Soil Conditioner rather than pure green manures, composted green or animal waste.

Uses of FF 50:

  • Soil conditioning and basic fertility raising by the supply of stable humus, fulvic and humic components.
  • Component of fertility boosting with either another hi-tech Bio-humate granular and or fish/seaweed ground spray. Also a home for nitrogen fixing and phosphate releasing microbes.
  • Base for a soil blend for use by nursery/building supplies/turf company.
  • Enriching regular compost with humic and fulvic acids. Most compost is extremely low in life-raising humic and fulvic acids, due to time limitations.

FF 20 Bio-humate Soil Regenerator:

FF 20 Bio-humate Soil Regenerator is a product specially formulated using FF 50 Bio-humate Soil Conditioner as the base material with the added benefit of added Fish Oil, Paramagnetic Rock Dust and Lime.

FF 60 Bio-humate Phos Boosted Soil Regenerator:

FF 60 is a special blend of 75% FF 20 and 25% Soft Rock Phosphate. With the Soft Rock Phosphate and FF 20 combined during the composting process the microbial action on the Soft Rock Phosphate makes the “P” more readily available.

OF 64 Bio-humate ‘Poly Plus’

Ferbon OF 64 ‘Poly Plus’

The bio-enhancing properties of Bio-humate ‘Poly Plus’ are essential for today’s progressive Eco-farmers. By feeding the soil as well as the plant, the vast interdependent of microscopic beneficial soil micro-flora is enhanced, enabling natural processes to take place. This huge integrated workforce has the ability to feed and defend the living plant, maximising the yield and quality potential of the crop species. Soil vitamins, enzymes, proteins, antibiotics, metabolic processes etc. so naturally necessary for the vitality of the crop are all related to the soil micro-organisms.

  • Bio-humate ‘Poly Plus’ concentrates are complete highly soluble forms of a group 11 humic acids used in agriculture to improve soil structure, buffer against the effects of both salinity and adverse pH.
  • Bio-humate ‘Poly Plus’ increases water retention and generally improves soil fertility by encouraging beneficial soil micro-organisms and fungal activity.
  • Bio-humate ‘Poly Plus’ is beneficial particularly on soils over fertilised with phosphates, nitrates etc.

T.E. ‘Plus’ Trace Elements

Organic Base Soluble Foliar & Fertigation Concentrates

Ferbon T.E. ‘Plus’ Series Sprays are formulated to provide for specific trace element absorption where and fruit set conditions indicate severe deficiencies often activated by poor nutrient translocation and soil imbalance. The biological and chelating additives also include micro-nutrients to ensure efficient photo-synthesis resulting in improved sugar levels and pigmentation.

All Ferbon T.E. ‘Plus’ Sprays are based on liquor consisting of organic chelating agents, and micro-nutrients. The COMBO grade combines the individual grades OF 100 – OF 400 with the additional micro-nutrients especially for pasture application.

  • OF 45 Calcium
  • OF 46 Zinc
  • OF 47 Copper
  • OF 48 Boron
  • OF 49 Cobalt
  • OF 50 Molybdenum
  • OF 100 Magnesium
  • OF 200 Zinc/Manganese
  • OF 300 Iron
  • OF 400 Phosphorus
  • OF 500 Combo Grade

OF 29 Silico Sulfonate

A soluble organic spray concentrate serving as a valuable tonic to promote more effective photosynthesis, especially among winter leafy vegetables and fruit bearing plants and vines in cooler areas. Increases in plant tissue size as well as raised sugar levels creates longer lasting, greener appearance and increased Brix readings have been reported.

OF 29 Silico Sulfonate is an Ultra Filtered blend of silicate, potassium, seaweed, an organic form of sulphur, humic concentrates and molasses. OF 29 is primarily a foliar spray, but may also be used as a ground spray.

In 1988 German reports on orchard use of an early more “primitive” form of diluted silicon type spray showed increases in apple total sugar levels of 28% approx. Absorption appeared to be by the CUTIN (the main part of the cuticle). Corresponding increased root uptake of soil nutrients was also noted, as well as earlier ripening (maturity).

Results now to hand here in southern Australia indicate that Ferbon Silico Sulfonate, a much improved form of silicon spray, is supplying a better all round balance of enhancement.

OF 30 Potassium Silicate

A soluble Potassium Silicate concentrate (32% SiO2 ) suitable for all applications where a clear silicate solution is required. Particularly in fruiting crops where staining on the bottom of the fruit may occur late in the season if using OF 29 Silico Sulfonate. The benefits are similar to using OF 29 Silico Sulfonate as both enhance plant growth and resilience. See below

Silica in Plants

♦ Calcium and silica in plant cell walls help determine the ability of a plant to provide resilience to environmental and biological stressors.
♦ Calcium is important in nutrient transport in plant cells, but has low mobility.
♦ Soluble silica can increase the mobility of calcium in plant nutrient pathways.
♦ Silica provides cell-strengthening capacity and functions as an immune support.
♦ Enhances ability of chloroplasts to maximise solar energy efficiency in production of plant sugars and tissue.

Benefits in Crop Production

♦ Enhances efficiency of photosynthesis.
♦ Stimulates crop vigour and quality.
♦ Lessens biotic stress to improve plant structural strength and immune function.
♦ Decreases effects of excess or deficient nutrients, e.g. N, P, Fe, Mn.
♦ Alleviates abiotic plant stress e.g. frost, low sunlight, drought, chemical.
♦ Increases tolerance to salinity, sodicity and heavy metal toxicity.
♦ Rapidly incorporated into the cell walls
♦ Enhances the mobility of calcium in plant nutrient pathways.
♦ Improves Brix levels (dissolved nutrients) to enhance growth and crop quality.
♦ Can be applied to all crops including certified as organic.
♦ Low cost and easy application.
