Humic DG is an organic, carbon-based soil amendment that is highly concentrated and contains 70% fulvic acid, humic acid and humin. It is made using The Andersons patented, Dispersible Granule (DG) technology. Upon contact with water, each Humic DG granule disperses into thousands of micro particles that move directly into the root zone and provide immediate benefits to the soil and plant.

Humic DG can benefit all soil types and reduce watering requirements. In sandy soils, it increases water holding capacity and decreases evaporation. In clay and other compact soils, it enables deeper water and root penetration.

Analysis 70% Humic Acid
Package Sizes 11 lbs, 40 lbs
Coverage Up to 11,000 sqft (11 lb) | Up to 40,000 sqft (40 lb)

Humic DG can be applied to all soil and turf types in any growing stage. It can also be used in gardens and flower beds. Humic DG can be applied on its own or blended into other granular applications. For best results, mow prior to applying and water in thoroughly. Avoid applying Humic DG before heavy rainfall as particles risk being washed away.

Some situations will require higher use rates and/or more frequent applications.


Apply 1-2 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. anytime during the growing season.


Apply 1-2 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. anytime during the growing season.

The spreader settings for this product were established using standard equipment available from the spreader manufacturer at swath widths and speeds typically used within the industry. Many variables such as walking speed, terrain, particle size, density, and spreader condition can affect these settings. Spreader settings are intended as a guide and unit calibration should still be performed to ensure proper application rates. They are not intended to replace calibration. The Andersons recommends the use of broadcast spreader for its products.
