Humate is applied at the rates of 200-600 pounds per acre, depending on soil conditions, climate conditions and the particular crop. The applications are recommended in two to four equal applications from early spring through fall during normal crop treatment cycles. The application should be included with normal and regular fertilization programs.


Various applications have also been tried effectively with humate in solution and liquid application.

New-Mex U-Mate™ works best when minimum daily soil temperatures reach 55 degrees Fahrenheit or more.
