Soil liming in zones - an investment that pays off.

Zone  liming is based on measuring the surface pH variability of the land plot and the subsequent application of different doses in different parts of the field.

Cost savings achieved in this way amounts up to 25%.

Results of regular soil liming according to our liming practice since 1997:

  • Increase in yield by 5 to 20% (depends on specific soil and climatic conditions).
  • Maintain soil fertility, accessibility of nutrients and good soil structure.
  • Cost reduction of fertilizing and soil cultivation.

Fast return on investment:
  • Prompt return on investment in liming at current commodity prices.
  • The increase by 2% increase in yield will pay all the cost of liming the soils with a higher pH.
  • As for the soils with lower pH, the increase in yield amounts to 3.5%.

We offer application of a wide range of calcium compounds.
We are able to satisfy the demands of agronomists not only in the  traditional finely ground limestones, we also offer dolomites with varied magnesium content and various mixtures with a certain proportion of burnt lime for an immediate soil reaction.

Calcium effects fundamentally
 the soil features.

It has a positive influence on almost all soil parameters:

chemical parameters - at high pH values, lower solubility is evident
mobility and acceptability of heavy metals, on the contrary the acceptability of phosphorus is higher
physicochemical parameters - Calcium and magnesium colloidal saturation with positive effect on favorable soil structure and porosity, better soil workability
biological processes - it affects the occurrence and activity of microorganisms and the creation of quality humus

Soil liming improves conditions for plant growth . This is confirmed by long-term domestic and foreign research. E.g. large-scale production experiments in Germany show up to 44% of yield losses associated with insufficient calcium fertilization.
