Geohumus is a novel soil additive, manufactured in Germany, with excellent water absorbing properties. It is a patented hybrid material combining a highly efficient water absorbing polymer (organic component) with the benefits of volcanic rock flour, clay minerals and silicates (mineral components). The result is an odorless, sponge-like granulate which retains its structural stability in the soil together with its high water absorption capacity. The organic component consists of an innovative version of a super absorbent, derived from natural gas, and is responsible for the storage of plant available water. The mineral components, apart from their fertilizing effects, provide structural stability, hence avoiding the formation of gel layers in the soil. The core attribute of Geohumus™ is swelling and expanding of the particles during water uptake, with the following soil improving aspects: √ storage of plant available water √ stimulation of root growth and plant strengthening √ promotion of soil life √ long-term delivery of important plant nutrients.

a fresh and healthy appearance

Healthier plants, vigorous blossoms Geohumus provides a steady water supply hence avoiding rapid desiccation and wilting of the plants. The improvement of soil structure results in the stimulation of soil life so that plant nutrients derived from soil organic matter and Geohumus minerals are made plant available. This provides plant strengthening and gives them Fewer plant failures Geohumus reduces the shock from transplanting, by stimulation of the root growth. This leads to fast adaptation of the plants to their new environment. Geohumus reduces the failures in the critical phase, shortly after transplanting of trees and shrubs in field applications. Higher nutrient efficiency Plant roots can also grow directly into the water storing Geohumus particles, dissolving the containing mineral nutrients. Due to the reduction of leakage water, the corresponding nutrient losses, i.e. washing-out of fertilizers, are reduced as well. Environmental safety The application of Geohumus according to good practice is absolutely safe for environment and health. This has been proven in various toxicological and ecotoxicological surveys. The soil fauna provides a physical grinding and reduction of Geohumus aggregates while the soil micro flora, predominantly fungi, fulfill the biological degradation. After 3 to 5 years due to progressed degradation, Geohumus has almost lost its functionality and can be added to the soil again.

Recommended amount: 2 table spoons Geohumus/pot (equivalent to 1 liter pot volume) First put some potting substrate in the pot. Add a layer of Geohumus in which the plant is placed. Fill up the pot with potting substrate. Alternatively: Mix 10 g of Geohumus homogeneously with 1 liter of potting mix to create a Geohumus containing growth substrate which can be used like normal potting substrate. Please note! In both cases water your plants until leakage water occurs. After 1 day repeat the watering. Now Geohumus can develop its full Recommended amount: 10 g Geohumus /liter planting container First put some potting substrate in the container. Add a layer of Geohumus in which the plant is placed. Fill up the container with potting substrate. Alternatively Mix 10 g of Geohumus homogeneously with 1 liter of potting mix to create a Geohumus containing growth substrate which can be used like normal potting substrate. Please note!

Now Geohumus can develop its full Areal application Recommended amount: 500 g Geohumus /m 2 Apply Geohumus equally onto the surface and incorporate it into the upper 10 cm of the soil with adequate tools (e.g. rake). Irrigate thoroughly after Geohumus application! Plant-by-plant application Recommended amount: 10 g Geohumus /liter plant hole Place Geohumus under the roots, establish the plant and fill up the remaining space with soil. Irrigate thoroughly after Geohumus New Plantings Dimensions of the hole (length, width, depth in cm): 30 x 30 x 30 160 g Geohumus (= 0.4%; m/m)* 40 x 40 x 40 380 g Geohumus (= 0.4%; m/m) 50 x 50 x 50 750 g Geohumus (= 0.4%; m/m) 100 x 100 x 100 6,0 kg Geohumus (= 0.4%; m/m) *Important!

Excavate a hole and store the soil temporarily. Put 2/3 back into the hole and add the recommended amount of Geohumus and mix it with the soil. Place the plant into this Geo humus-soil mix and fill up the hole with the rest of the soil. Water thoroughly! Alternatively Mix 6 kg Geohumus homogeneously with 1 m3 soil to create a Geohumus containing soil substrate. Fill up the uppermost 5 cm horizon with the excavated soil material without Geohumus. Water thoroughly! Geohumus can also be placed in the root area of existing trees and tree cultures. Thereto the material will be injected by compressor assisted devices into the root area down to 70-80 cm soil depth. By turning of the device during the injection Geohumus will be disposed in the designated direction. Areas up to 50 cm away from the injector can be reached. Basically Geohumus should be placed in those regions where the water infiltration and the activity of the plant roots are topmost. Plant height: 1 - 2 m 1-2 kg Geohumus 2 – 5 m 2-5 kg Geohumus 5 – 10 m up to 10 kg Geohumus
