Optimize your soil health with Black Swallow Dolomitic Limestone #80 Grit, a balanced source of calcium and magnesium. This 4.4lb bag is ideal for gardeners seeking to improve soil structure and nutrient balance.

Key Features:

  • Calcium and Magnesium Source: Provides essential calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate, crucial for healthy plant growth and soil structure.

  • Acidity Neutralizer: Helps neutralize soil acidity, promoting a balanced pH and encouraging the growth of beneficial microorganisms.

  • Slow-Release Formula: Takes longer to dissolve in the soil compared to calcitic limestone, offering extended soil pH moderation.

  • #80 Grit Size: Fine grit ensures even distribution and effective soil integration.

Benefits:

  • Improves Soil Structure: Adequate calcium helps break apart heavy soils, creating a lighter, more aerated soil, while magnesium aids in nutrient uptake.

  • Enhances Nutrient Availability: Balancing soil pH can significantly improve the availability of nutrients to plants, fostering robust growth and crop production.

  • Long-Lasting Effects: The slow-release nature of dolomitic limestone provides sustained benefits over time, reducing the need for frequent applications.

Usage Considerations:

  • High Magnesium Soils: Avoid use in soils with high magnesium content, such as clay and clay loam soils, to prevent soil binding and weed proliferation.

  • Low Magnesium Soils: Ideal for sandy, quick-draining soils with a calcium-to-magnesium ratio of 6:1 or greater, indicating magnesium deficiency.

  • pH Balancing: Best used in soils with a pH below 7 to neutralize acidity and improve soil health.

Application Instructions:

  • General Use: Consult with a certified agronomist to determine the specific application rate for your soil type and requirements.

Storage Instructions:

  • Store in a cool, dry place to maintain product integrity and effectiveness.

Enhance your soil with Black Swallow Dolomitic Limestone #80 Grit. This dual-purpose amendment supplies essential calcium and magnesium while balancing soil pH, ensuring healthier, more productive plants. Perfect for gardeners looking to improve soil quality naturally.
