What is GRAN-LIME?

Gran-Lime is a lime that is far more finely-ground than typical ground limestone. It is a combination of calcium and magnesium lime which is 100% water-soluble and 99% available to plants in the soil. It comes in a granulated form for ease of spreading by any conventional spreader. It is specially formulated to quickly reduce the acidity in the soil.

Why use GRAN-LIME?

Can be spread with a conventional fertiliser spreader
Farmer applied – no need for contractors.
Minimises the risk of compaction
Can be used in conjunction with Urea-based fertilisers when spread seperately.
Granular Lime – therefore not blown away by wind

Application Rate

GrazingGood pH

Apply 125kgs/ha/year (1 x 50kg bag/acre/year) to maintain pH levels.

Low pHLow pH

Apply 250kgs/ha/year (2 x 50 kg bags/acre/year) until pH rises and 125kgs/ha/year (1 x 50kg bag/acre/year) to maintain this pH level.

ReseedingReseeding

Apply 250kgs/ha (2 x 50kg bags/acre) at reseeding and 125kgs/ha (1 x 50kg bag/acre) in subsequent years.

GRAN-LIME is best applied at the beginning of the growing season, but can be used effectively at any time of the year.
