Lime in Agriculture

Calcium, Lime and Dolomites are minerals used as Agricultural Corrective, the addition of Nutrients and Correcting the Acidity of Soils are the main Actions! The richness in CALCIUM and MAGNESIUM favors the growth of the palntas and increases the yield of the Cultures.

The application of these minerals is called CALAGE, it can be done before the crops, that is, in the preparation of the soils before cultivating, or right after the harvests. These minerals can be found in natural form without chemical transformation "raw" the Calcium Carbonate and Magnesium Carbonate and after chemical transformation "calcined" the Calcitica and Dolomitica Calcitica, its application requires analysis of the soils in order to obtain the correct amounts to apply, also taking into account that the minerals in the form of Lime have a much higher power of action, hence the calculation to determine which and the amount to apply is a determining factor.

Lime is also present and assumes a role of high importance in animal husbandry, both in Stables and pasture, particularly with regard to the hygiene of spaces, the elimination of bacteria, viruses, parasites and the nutritive favoring of pastures, Lime is the product that can favor all aspects mentioned, with the added value of being considered actions of a natural and ecological nature.

Lime is a product that is also applied, in fruit production, normally as a component of some compositions, namely in "Calda Bordalesa", compositions that are usually applied in the liquid state allowing the Pulverization, the most common examples are the Olive and Citrus, reducing the Acidity and making them sweeter. In some cases the lime beds can be applied on Trees, Plants, Fruits and even Soils, allowing the creation of a protective barrier against pests, diseases and damage to the elements, adds nutrients "Calcium and Magnesium", favoring and promoting healthy growth, is biodegradable, regenerates the soils and is an excellent bactericide, totally Natural and Ecological.
