SoluCal Products

Unique granular products containing Calcium
 

Why use more when you can use less?SOLU-CAL®is four times more effective than lime in adjusting soil Ph.

 

SOLU-CAL®will raise soil pH in as little as eight weeks unlike pelletised lime which can take up to eighteen months

 

• 75% less labour handling, transport costs and storage space

 

• 80% less dust than traditional liming products 

 

 

Benefits

 

• Helps plant solubilise and actually extract nutrients from the soil while increasing translocation of nutrients in the plant

 

• PHCA is extremely effective when impregnated onto a Calcium source. When applied, it works immediately aiding the plant in solubilising the applied Calcium and the accumulated Calcium in the soil from previous applications.

 

• PHCA shows consistent performance in increasing root development, increasing plant health, vigour and nutrient translocation. 

 

 

General Information
 

Pure, ultra-fine ground pelletised calcium carbonate is impregnated with 2% PHCA, a proprietary organic acid. PHCA enhances the plant’s ability to convert both the applied and stored calcium into an immediately available form for plant uptake and soil pH adjustment.

 

SOLU-CAL®products utilise cutting edge Carboxy technology PHCA.PHCA (Polyhydroxycarboxylic Acid) is widely used in agriculture as an additive to fertiliser applications to significantly enhance the uptake of macro and micro-nutrients.Research on crops consistently shows a 30% increase in nutrient uptake, and also translocation through the plant when PHCA is combined with fertility applications. PHCA acts as a nutrient mining agent assisting the plant to solubilise applied nutrients and accumulated nutrients already present in the soil.
