Gran lime is granules of finely ground limestone (consistently below 150 microns) which has been
combined, in a unique process, with a water soluble organic binder to produce hard 2 to 5 mm size
Gran lime is produced in the UK and is suitable for use on all farms, large or small, forestry and horticulture
use. It is supplied in conveniently packaged in non returnable 600 kg bags for ease of handling.
Calcifert has many benefits over conventional lime. The biggest benefit to farmers is that calcifert doesn’t
need to be applied by specialist contractors – it can be applied by you, using conventional farm fertiliser
Calciferts benefits include:
Application rates vary depending on soil type, acid levels and type of crop.
Trials on sandy soil have shown that an application of 248kg per hectare (100kg per acre) increased pH by
0.9 within 4 weeks at a depth of 2/3cm. Two years into the trial, the same single application of calcifert has
increased pH by 0.6 at a soil depth of 14-15cm.
