Cal-CARB is a source of very fine calcium carbonate suspended with ACS to elevate soil pH in the root zone and to provide calcium for crops.
1- Cal-CARB is a unique blend of very fine calcium carbonate and ACS. The small particle size of the calcium carbonate material of less than 60 microns. The very small size helps with the application strategy and allows the mixture to be directly sprayed onto the soil or injected via irrigation/applicator systems for delivery with water (with constant agitation). The addition of the ACS carrier provides
immediate energy for soil microbes that have a requirement for energy. Most microbes have a 40% carbon content in their body.
2 - Cal-CARB use can be adjusted to address low soil pH from natural soil conditions or low pH irrigation water. Calculators are available to predict the amount of material to use in the soil application strategies. The small particle size insures a quick release of the calcium when applied to the soil. The reaction (neutralize acidity) occurs in the soil solution and not in the irrigation system. Cal-CARB contains 30% calcium carbonate. Cal-CARB will provide root tips (the site of most calcium uptake) with a readily available calcium source.
3 - Cal-CARB is safe and can be applied over the surface of crops without issue. Calcium Carbonate must migrate into the soil solution to elevate soil solution pH. Water moves the Calcium Carbonate down into the root zone for pH remediation and to supply needed Calcium for crops/roots. Cal-CARB can be applied to soil surfaces when incorporation is not possible (no till), and the small particle
size will move with irrigation water. Larger granular or typical Limestone materials will slowly migrate into the soil/root zone. Dispersing the very small elemental Cal particles throughout the soil is readily achieved with Cal-CARB. Cal-CARB rate can be adjusted tor specific root zones and side-dressed or top-dressed as needed.
