Kelp Help and Kelp & Humic Acid Blend

Postby cmcgill » June 16th, 2016, 2:24 pm

I'm curious as to the differences & benefits of either Kelp Help or the Kelp and Humic Acid Blend http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kelp-and-Humic- ... 27aa9d0e27 listed by kelp4less.

Thanks!

You can get water soluble kelp powder on its own... mix it with soluble humic acid.... for cheaper price of their pre-mixed, but more importantly you can mix it at the rate that YOU want (as outlined in the BLSC KelpHelp article recipe)

edit: I see 16oz Humic for 16$, 16oz Kelp for 17$ -... but you might find cheaper if you dig. That will get you two pounds total mix...

You can of course buy 8oz of each product, but price isn't nearly as good at my first glance.

Reviving an old thread...

Right now I've found the following sources:

1lb soluble humic acid @ $14.45 shipped
1lb soluble kelp @ $19.95 shipped

Mixing these at a 2:1 ratio of kelp/HA, I get a unit cost of $16.28/lb for my KelpHelp mix.

There is a vendor on Ebay selling their own premixed recipe at a 3:2:3 ratio of humic acid/fulvic acid/kelp powder. At 5lbs, the unit cost is $15.80/lb.

Any thoughts on their premixed recipe? Is fulvic acid beneficial to a lawn at all?
