I met up with an old aggie/viticulture friend from college the other evening as he was traveling from AZ up to Santa Rosa, CA.  We are FB friends, along with another college friend, one of my bridesmaids many years ago) who has a vineyard and winery in CA.  Back to the male friend.  He sells Bio-Flora products for commercial ag operations in the US and other continents.  He gave me 4 quarts of the following and asked for feed back.  I've been reluctant to try the products (being a hard core SFG) but he asked for feedback, and what the heck, maybe they will help with disease.
 
Humega (a humic acid from humates)

Fulmega (1% magnesium)

Seaweed concentrate (didn't catch the exact product name)

Go-Isolates (pure cultures of microorganisms from humate materials, and categorized them by their beneficial properties such as; cellulose degradation, hydrocarbon degradation, and suppression of soil-borne plant pathogens)  &  Go-Green (Selected species of freshwater green and yellow-green micro-algae)

Don't worry, I will still be making my homemade compost and compost tea.  And, may I add, my friend was impressed by how much I can grow in my tiny back yard in so few square feet (115 sq ft) plus a few buckets and tubs.  Very Happy

Wiki: Humic acid
"Humic acid is a principal component of humic substances, which are the major organic constituents of soil, peat and coal. It is also a major organic constituent of many upland streams, dystrophic lakes, and ocean water. It is produced by biodegradation of dead organic matter. It is not a single acid; rather, it is a complex mixture of many different acids containing carboxyl and phenolate groups so that the mixture behaves functionally as a dibasic acid or, occasionally, as a tribasic acid. Humic acids can form complexes with ions that are commonly found in the environment creating humic colloids. Humic and fulvic acids are commonly used as a soil supplement in agriculture, and less commonly as a human nutritional supplement. As a nutrition supplement, fulvic acid can be found in a liquid form as a component of mineral colloids. Fulvic acids are poly-electrolytes and are unique colloids that diffuse easily through membranes whereas all other colloids do not."

The only thing I know is that Humus is left over when organic matter can not decompose any further. tongue

Science, acknowledged!  

I get it, just never have heard the terms humates or humic acid.  Humus, yes!  Thanks!
