Humification means the formation of humus. Humus is a black amorphous substance produced by the decomposition of dead and decaying organic matter by microorganisms. Humification differs from mineralisation. In mineralisation, as the name implies, inorganic nutrients are recycled. Organic matter is further decomposed to form inorganic compounds. In the process of humification, organic matters are transformed into organic polymers, which are stable and cannot be decomposed further by organisms and remain as humus.
