Calcium Fertiliser: Cost-reducing and improved yield

There are many benefits to using granulated calcium products as a fertiliser. One benefit of using granulated products is no contractors are required. This is because all granulated products can be spread using a standard farm spreader. Secondly, the high reactivity of our fertiliser allows for a low rate of application that rapidly reacts with the soil producing the desired effect.

Independent AQS certification for Calcifert

Calcifert Lime is one of the first lime products certified under the new AgLime Quality Standard (AQS).

Firstly, AQS is an industry-led initiative requiring all Agricultural Lime Association (ALA) members supplying Ag lime to undertake annual tests to verify their compliance with UK national or EU regulatory standards. The ALA created this standard so farmers can have confidence in the quality of the lime they are buying. This standard is the first assurance benchmark within the UK fertiliser sector for agricultural lime products. The standard includes tests measuring reactivity, neutralising value (NV), fineness, and calcium & magnesium content.

Why is The AQS significant?

Secondly, the AQS provides farmers with the added reassurance for lime bought is independently verified fertiliser meeting a recognised standard. We firmly believe farmers need to have confidence in the specification of the inputs they are applying to their soil. This is to ensure they get the results they require and expect. Our customers know that by buying Calcifert Lime, they can be confident of getting a very high-quality, premium ground limestone that’s 100% reactive.
