The rapid increase in the world population will also need tremendous amount of food for its survival, this is inevitable. Vegetable crop production has been successfully maximised by conventional production method. But it eventually leads toward deterioration of overall environmental condition of agriculture system. Humic acids derived from soil and applied as soil application, seed or seedling treatment and foliar application, these are important component of soil found to be beneficial for most of the vegetable crops. Various kinds of characteristics like growth, development, yield and quality of vegetable crops has been improved after application of humic acid. Vegetable crops give positive response after application of humic acid in abiotic stress management and production of secondary metabolites. The purpose of this review article is to establish the basic understanding of humic acid and its important in vegetable crops and also emphasizes the results of humic acid on the by-products of the plants.

Keywords    Humic acid, Yield, Quality, Abiotic stress, Secondary metabolites.
