DEBENHAM Australia has introduced Calciprill to Gippsland and its revolutionising the way hilly country is fertilised.
Calciprill is a lime product perfect for aerial applications. It’s a 2-6mm prill made from finely ground, high purity lime.
It’s dust free and easy to spread by aircraft or through normal spreading gear.
Ian Debenham from Debenham Australia, based in Leongatha, said Calciprill gives farmers on hilly and steep country the opportunity to address soil acidity.
“It’s something many would have struggled with previously due to physical and economic constraints.
“There is a high proportion of hill country in South Gippsland that has a very good fertiliser history, however the soils are still very acidic.
“This means poor uptake of applied fertiliser and often above optimum levels of soil aluminium and iron.
“Raising soil pH will help to alleviate these problems and improve pasture performance.
“Farmers should now consider building the use of Calciprill into their annual fertiliser programs.”
