The Power of Now: The Difference of In-Season NutraLime DG Availability

Posted on September 27, 2016

WHY NOW?

NutraLime® DG pelletized limestone is micro-ground so a majority of particles pass through a 100 mesh sieve before the pelletizing process. The finer the grind, the faster and more effective the limestone.

Particles passing through a 100 mesh sieve dissolve and neutralize acidity in as little as two weeks after application. Due to the increased effectiveness of the NutraLime DG particles, lower rates may be used to provide in-season calcium and magnesium. 
 

 

THE "TRUCKER" OF ALL NUTRIENTS

We are most familiar with the role calcium and magnesium play to increase pH, but calcium also facilitates the movement of N-P-K and all other nutrients into the plant. For this reason, it has been referred to as the “trucker” of all minerals. It can be argued that without plant-available calcium, a farmer cannot achieve maximum yield and test weights. 

Calcium also improves soil structure, tilth and aeration, encourages root growth, builds strong cell walls, facilitates nitrogen-fixing bacteria, increases disease resistance, and stimulates beneficial soil microbes.


CENTER OF THE CHLOROPHYLL MOLECULE

Did you know magnesium is the center of the chlorophyll molecule?

Magnesium plays a central role in photosynthesis, protein synthesis and enzyme activation. It is also a phosphorus carrier. High applications of high calcium ag limestone, without consideration of magnesium, can push magnesium out of reach in the soil profile.
