AgriCal Benefits at a Glance
Quite often, lime is applied when what the soil truly needs is calcium!
AgriCal liquid calcium presents growers with an alternative solution to lime applications. The importance of calcium as an essential plant nutrient in the soil is often overlooked. Too many times when soil tests show a low pH the immediate reaction is to spread more lime. However, ag lime tends to be insoluble and can take years to beak down and show it's effectiveness. In fact, the odds are good that soil may already contain more undissolved, unused limestone than soil tests are calling for.
Rather than just looking at soil pH, an effective soil test should also include the quantity of soluble calcium (measured in ppm or %) and the Calcium % Base Saturation in the soil. The pH alone is not a valid indicator of soluble calcium levels in soils. For example, when pure sand is analyzed it has a neutral pH but has no available calcium..
