Yearly testing of the soil is a must. By maintaining the pH in the soil, you can then get full use of the fertilizer you’re spreading making it much more efficient.
Rapid Calcitic Lime has long been the preferred treatment for acidic soil. A thorough application of Rapid Calcitic Lime tilled into the soil raises the pH to a neutral level improving overall soil health allowing naturally occurring nutrients to be absorbed by the plant.
The main “ingredient” in Rapid Calcitic Lime is calcium carbonate. It counteracts the acidification of the soil. Acidification is the natural result of nitrogen heavy fertilizing practices. By adding a lime treatment, you can undo the damage caused by nitrogen treatments without counteracting the benefits. In addition to neutralizing pH, lime also encourages the growth of micro-organisms that contribute to plant health. With the combination of helpful micro-organisms and pH balanced soil, plants and crops will thrive.
Rapid Calcitic Lime works effectively, even with one treatment and it works more quickly than dolomite lime: Calcium carbonate is better at balancing pHs than magnesium carbonate, and calcitic lime contains much higher levels of calcium carbonate than dolomite lime.
Works faster and more efficiently than traditional pelletized lime.
- Raises soil ph in weeks rather than months!
- Within 8 weeks, full pH correction and calcium loading is complete.
- Covers 5000 sq. ft., the equivalent of 5 bags of regular pelletized lime
- Safe to use anytime of the year. Use up to 3 times per year.
