Z-HUME is a spray adjuvant that contains 3% Fractured Natural Polyhydroxy Acids, otherwise known as Lignin. As plant material decomposes, lignin accumulates to constitute an important ingredient of humus, albeit in a modified condition. In the process of humification, lignin unites with proteins, chiefly those elaborated by microorganisms, to form a lignin-proteinate complex. This renders the protein very resistant to microbial attack. Thus, Nitrogen in humus is retained and only slowly liberated.

Humus itself undergoes slow decomposition so that in well-aerated soils receiving normal additions of organic matter its level remains fairly constant. This slow decomposition is of great practical importance. It constitutes a means whereby Nitrogen, as well as simple mineral compounds, can be stored in soil and released gradually for consumption by growing plants.

When using Z-HUME, there should be adequate Calcium available or Calcium should be added. Z-HUME aids in the release of plant nutrients by extending their availability over a longer period of time. Z-HUME is the best microbial product available for use in high saline soils. Using Z-HUME in conjunction with Gypsum will help alleviate saline toxicity.

USAGE: As part of a residue decomposition spray, in starter fertilizers, as a broadcast fertilizer, or for the impregnation of limestone.

APPLICATION: In a Residue Decomposition Spray:

6-10 gal. 28% Nitrogen
3 lbs. Sugar or 2 gal. Molasses
1-2 gal. Liquid Calcium (9-0-0-11Ca) if needed
2-3 gal. Thiosul
2 qts. Z-Hume

Spray this on residue and lightly incorporate. This aids in the decomposition of residue through the use of bacteria, preventing the residue from oxidizing and turning to ash.

In a Starter Fertilizer:

5-10 gal. Starter Fertilizer
1-3 gal. Molasses or 2-3 lbs. Sugar
2 qts. Z-Hume
1 qt. Liquid Fish

This should aid in plant emergence as well as early plant vigor for residue decomposition.

As a broadcast with Nitrogen solution:

25-50 gal. 28% or 32% Nitrogen
2-4 gal. Thiosul
1-3 gal. Molasses or 3-6 lbs. Sugar
2 qts. Z-Hume

For impregnating Limestone:

Apply 5 gal. Z-Hume mixed in 5 gal. water to each ton of Limestone.
