REMINDER OF IMPROVEMENTS TO LIME FERTILIZER IMPROVEMENTS REPOSTED NOVEMBER 5, 2012
The liquid lime fertilizer by AgGrand was improved for soil conditioning and foliar application back in 2011. The dolomitic lime was changed to calcitic limestone. Of course, we know the size of particles when ground is 600 times smaller than previously. In application information, the AgGrand Liquid Lime Fertilizer can be added as a foliar spray when plants such as tomatoes, peppers and eggplant are at full bloom. Also good for bitter pit on fruit trees. See Application link below.
“The new AGGRAND Natural Liquid Lime formulation…. incorporating pure calcitic limestone, the improved formulation boasts an average particle size 600 percent smaller than the previous formulation and nearly doubles the available calcium. Because calcium plays a critical role in overall plant nutrient uptake, it should be part of any long-term fertilization program. In fact, approximately 90 percent of the soil analyses received by AGGRAND need calcium. In addition, the new formulation’s suspension agents reduce product separation for longer shelf-life. AGGRAND Natural Liquid Lime pricing remains unchanged for the new formulation. For more information visit Liquid Lime – AGGRAND STORE.
Read Walt’s Corner in AGGRAND News for Liquid Lime information. Here are his words on the improved super fine lime grind.
“A typical recommendation for AGGRAND Natural Liquid Lime is 2 gallons per acre per application, which places about 6 pounds of limestone in the root zone immediately, at a Dealer cost of about $30 per acre. Since bagged or solid limestone needs to be tilled under to be effective, a lot less effort is required to get that calcium to the crop, when AGGRAND Natural Liquid Lime is used. Now, you may think the amount of lime in 2 gallons of Natural Liquid Lime doesn’t amount to a whole lot. A 6-pound piece of limestone doesn’t cover a very large area. But,if you grind it into a powder, 6 pounds of powdered lime will kick up a dust storm that could hide a tractor. In short, limestone fine enough to go through a 325-mesh screen will go a long way.” Walt Sandbeck, CCA Certified Crop Advisor at Aggrand. AGGRAND NEWS 2012

Their improved formulation now has an average particle size 600 percent smaller than the previous formulation, nearly doubles the available calcium, and suspension agents reduce product separation for longer shelf-life.
Natural AGGRAND Liquid Lime Fertilizer Fills Deficiency because approximately 90 percent of the soil analyses received by AGGRAND need calcium and because calcium plays a critical role in overall plant nutrient uptake, it should be part of any long-term fertilization program.
