- Correct balance of calcium and magnesium ensures availability of other key nutrients
- Substantially reduce nitrate and phosphate inputs
- Reduce the quantity of inorganic fertilisers needed for healthy grass growth
- Low inorganic inputs help the development of a healthy soil food web for fine grass growth
CALCIUM CARBONATE Calcium is essential for strong plant cells and disease resistance in the plant. It is also the main component of the base cations and should make up at least 65% of the cations in the soil so the soil is kept open for air and water transfer and microbial growth. Too little calcium reduces nitrification and phosphate uptake.
GRANULAR CALCIUM CARBONATE is a greens grade slow release source of calcium.
APPLICATION 50 – 100 gms per sq.m in spring or early summer, mix with top dressing or apply by itself – brush into tine holes after aeration. Apply annually until soil calcium levels reach desired level.
