Humate – For Lawns

Q: I read that one of best things to do for your lawn is to add humate, a soil conditioner. Do you know anything about it.

A: Despite many glowing claims from promoters, very little unbiased, university-based research supports the use of humate on a lawn.

It is expensive and I don’t think you will see a marked difference. My preference would be to till in compost or soil conditioner.
