Verde-Cal Products

Verde-Cal

Available in granular formation

What it Does

Verde-Cal is calcitic limestone combined with thCa™ (an organic complexing agent) and an Aqua Aid penetrant.

This product converts insoluble calcium compounds to soluble and available calcium. As a result, Verde-Cal allows you to apply less lime (500 pounds will yield results equivalent to 1 ton of typical lime) while offering a more uniform nutrient movement through the soil.

  • Improves germination, stimulates root growth, and enhances microbial activity
  • Increases essential nutrient absorption
  • Improves soil structure
  • Supplies optimum calcium levels to plant cells and strengthens the plant’s disease resistance
  • Balances the Ca/N ratio in the plant

Application Instructions

  • Conduct a soil test to determine liming needs.
  • To maintain optimum pH and growing conditions, apply at 5 pounds per 1,000 ft2 or 220 pounds per acre at least twice per growing season.

  • 500 pounds will yield results equivalent to 1 ton of typical gypsum
  • Leaches excessive amounts of sodium and magnesium from soil colloids
  • Helps loosen compacted, heavy clay soils
  • Supplies plant available sulfur in the sulfate form
  • Ideal for turf, shrubs, and flowers
