Add vooma to your fertilizing programme
with P&B Agricultural Lime.
P&B Agricultural Lime is nature's own soil booster. It creates the ideal conditions in the soil, to help you get the most from your fertilizer. Your fertilizing programme actually becomes much more effective. That's because the pH level of the soil determines how much nitrogen, potassium, phosphorous and other plant nutrients are available for uptake by the plant.
Add lime to acid soil, and you raise the pH value.
- You lift the soil's calcium level
- You speed up micro-biological activity
- You accelerate the release of organic matter and nutrient elements
- More phosphorous and nitrogen become available to the plant.
Many fertilizers turn the soil acid, which hampers the release of nutrients.
Applying P&B Agricultural Lime 'sweetens' the soil. It also promotes the growth of microbes and modifies clays and heavy soils to become more workable.
P&B Agricultural Lime is a calcitic lime. Its fine texture and high incidence of CaCO3 (a minimum of 80% guaranteed) exceed the prescribed levels for registration as a fertilizer.
