Our fifty-pound bags are "blow-in" type bags with 2 paper layers and an inner layer of impermeable plastic. Air holes in the bags allow the product to be blown in through an opening in the top of the bag. This opening is self-closing when the bag is filled to capacity. Fifty-pound bags are stacked on 40x48" pallets for shipping, with 45 bags to the pallet (2,250 pounds of product per pallet. The pallets themselves weigh 50 pounds). Shrink wrapping of palleted bags is available upon request. The bags are a plain brown paper with no printing. Pre-printed customer bags can be filled upon request.
The most popular method for shipping our products is in mini-bulk bags, each of which holds approximately 1 ton of product. These bags are made of a synthetic material and are resistant to moisture. The bags are "duffel top", meaning they can be tied closed at the top. A spout on the bottom of the mini-bulk bags is tied closed for filling and can be opened to allow dumping of the product into a hopper or mixer. Straps at the four top corners of the bags allow easy handling with a forklift. We can ship mini-bulk bags on pallets (36x26") upon request.
Granular humate products can be shipped in larger bulk storage containers such as grain trucks (hoppers), belt trailers, etc. Please inquire if you are interested in bulk shipments.

why are humateS SO important?
Yields drop. Crops become more susceptible to disease and weaker stock is an open invitation for pests to move in. Crucial to life,humates restore the natural balance in soil necessary for optimal plant growth, and provide the foundation for plant vigor. Humates are highly concentrated, natural organic humus, formed through the biological breakdown of plant life over millions of years. Today we mine those rich remains to give your soil a concentrated source of naturally occurring humus. Its biochemically active humic acid content and the complex process of organic complexing, along with increased microbial activity, make the minerals and trace elements which are necessary for growth readily available to your plants.
