Physical effects of liming
- Manage soil acidity
- Improve the structure of the soil
- Increase the soil’s ability to store water
- Promote root development
When and why do I need it?
- Soil with low Calcium status leading to Plant Nutrient Deficiencies – Agronomic
- Soils with Low pH – Soil Chemistry
- Soils Improper Cation Ratios – Soil Chemistry
- Soil Compaction / Hardpan Compaction due to inappropriate Ca : Mg – Soil Physical
- Ease of Usage / Transport / Application – The Practical /Economical Considirations
Key attributes of Calciprill
- Calciprill has a very high ECCE( effective calcium carbonate equivalent)giving a guaranteed quick reaction time. This brings about a quicker correction of acidic soil pH’s sooner than any other liming product.
- Calciprill can be blended into your fertiliser mix for the convenience of a single pass application.
- Calciprill can be applied directly to the soil or to your growing crop without causing phytotoxicity effects.
- Calciprill is applied at lower rates compared to conventional agricultural limes.
- Calciprill provides calcium nutrient to your growing crop.
- Reaction time 4-6 weeks after application.
- Average use rate through bunding 50Kgs/Acre realizing 0.3 to 0.5 pH increase in the root zone.
- Crop focus ; Maize, wheat, barley, legumes, potatoes, coffee, Brassicas and avocado.
- Average 13% yield increase especially on maize, wheat, barley, legumes and potatoes
- Depth of pH adjustment: 30cm to 90cm.
- Sustainability. Changes evident up to 13th month.
- Significant changes in nutrient availability and uptake (P and Ca).
