When the humic
acid concentration increased, the ALP activity began to increase then decreased again (P < 0.05).
In the first part, the humic
and fulvic acid fractions were extracted, purified, lyophilized, and submitted to the spectroscopic and elemental analyzes.
substances--made up of carbon and other elements--are the lifeblood for fertile soils.

TABLE 1: Organic carbon (C) content on 0-40 cm soil layer in the fulvic acids (AF), humic
acids (AH) and humin (HUM) of humic
substances and sum of these three fractions (SOMA) on four situations of soil use in a Humic
Dystrupept in southern Brazilian highlands.
"We undertook further mass spectrometry experiments, which suggest that there can indeed be a match between the types of structures we found in the databases and the molecular components of humic
systems," Zherebker added.
Quinones are also responsible for the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in humic
acids, which are useful for wound healing and have bactericidal properties (Melo et al., 2016).
Conversely, what management activities increase humic
acid and organic matter in our soils?
