Lime-Life

44% pure calcium, without the tag-ons, can be immensely valuable when calcium is deficient (ie. in 80% of all leaf tests we analyse).
 
A high-analysis source of micronised calcite combined in a free-flowing suspension with fulvic acid and soil-life metabolites. Calcium is the trucker of all minerals and virtually all crops will benefit from a calcium supplement during the crop phase.

Benefits

  • 20 litres provides a soluble "calcium kick" equivalent to 2 tonnes of limestone (based upon the fact that limestone contains less than 5 Kg of soluble calcium per tonne).
  • Enhances crop quality. More cost-effective per unit of soluble calcium than calcium nitrate.
  • More convenient than limestone.
  • A "fast food" source of calcium.
  • Also contains biological metabolites derived from:
  • Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus megaterium, Azotobacter vinelandii, Pseudomonas fluorescens, Pseudomonas putida, Rhizobium japonicum, Pseudomonas stutzeri, Rhizobium leguminosarum, Streptomyces albidoflavus, Streptomyces cellulosae, Chaetomium globosum, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Trichoderma lignorum.
  • Lime-Life™ promotes the precision required to build calcium. Calcium is "The Trucker" of nutrients and is one of "The Big Four" elements - it should be maintained at luxury levels within the plant.
  • Ideal whenever a nitrogen free calcium boost is required.
  • Lime-Life™ is a "spoon-feeding" option for light, sandy soils with poor retention of calcium.
  • Well suited to soils with excessive magnesium or potassium.
  • Necessary in high-production horticulture where nitrogen and potassium reduce the performance of calcium regardless of soil test levels.
  • Biological Farmers of Australia (B.F.A.) Registered Product 456AI.

Application Rates

Foliar:

  • Broadacre: 2-5 litres per hectare.
  • Horticulture: 3-10 litres per hectare.

Fertigation or Boomspray onto the soil:

  • 10-30 litres per hectare.

Liquid Injection at planting:

  • 5-10 litres per hectare.

Dilution rate:

  • A minimum of 1:50

Miscellaneous

  • Shake or stir well before use. Spray tank will require constant agitation to prevent solids from settling out.
  • MMS products involve tiny 5 micron particles which are far too small in themselves to clog filters. However, if they are inadequately diluted or agitated before application, there is a possibility of problems with spray equipment.
  • MMS products should be slowly applied to the spray tank to avoid problems.
  • MMS products are very heavy and every care should be taken when handling these materials to avoid back injury. MMS products will leave a visible residue on leaves and fruit when used as a foliar. Soil applications may be preferable if this residue is commercially inappropriate.
  • Compatible with all other MMS products and most other liquid fertilisers, but always perform a "jar test" to check for precipitation.
