Nature’s Intent Calpril is made of calcium carbonate (limestone) which is crushed to a very fine powder: 100% will pass a 30 mesh screen; 70% will pass a 100 mesh screen; and more than 35% will pass a 325 mesh screen. The powder is then constituted into spherical granules held together with a binding agent. These granules are then sized to a maximum of 4 mesh and a minimum of 14 mesh.
The binding agent used to make Nature’s Intent Calpril is highly water-soluble. Consequently, as soon as Nature’s Intent Calpril granules come into contact with water, disintegration of the granule begins, and the many small particles which comprise the granule are released into the surrounding soil water medium and the reaction to correct soil pH begins. For best results, store in a dry location.
Nature’s Intent Calpril is 100% natural and is listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI), Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) Organic and the Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA), for use in organic crop production.
Fall application is preferred for established turf and gardens. This allows time for the lime to react and change the Ph for spring growing season. Established turf is applied top dress. For gardens and pre-plant for new turf, incorporate lime. Lime is more efficient when it is incorporated.
