Terms and rules of sowing granulated calcium Promyk Agro
The best time to sow is autumn (pre-sowing and after the main sow) and spring season. There is no need to be afraid of destroying or burning plants because all of the calcium products both Active CALC and Active MAG with the addition of magnesium are ecological carbonated calcium. It is safe calcium – nonaggressive, unlike oxidic and hydrogen-oxidic calcium. Mentioned limes are fast-working and aggressive fertilizers, which affect the soil microflora negatively.
You shouldn’t mix PROMYK Agro’s lime products inside of the broadcast seeder chamber. However, you can sow it in the same term with other fertilizers except: ammonium nitrate, urea, manure, ammonium phosphate, ammonium sulfate.

Soil analysis describes and presents in detail the soil chemical composition – including soil pH. In Poland some soils require deacidifying immediately, there are also soils that have regulated pH and there is no need for additional treating with lime.

So if treating with lime is necessary every farmer should choose fertilizers from checked, trustworthy and local providers and apply them according to the enumeration based on soil analysis results.
The important choice of fertilizer
