Reality #5:  To fully precipitate humic acids a soil would have to have much lower pH readings than those we usually refer to as “acid soils”.  Non-modified humic acids start to precipitate from pH 3 and lower. We can easily confirm this fact by looking at a simple humate solution.  The solution remains stable until it is lowered to a pH level of about 3.0.   At that point the humic acids do begin to precipitate into insoluble forms.  It is highly unlikely that anyone is growing crops in soils with a pH of 3.0 or less!  Therefore precipitation of humic acids during application of humates on soils does not really take place.  Again, this is simple science that cannot be disproved.
