Calcin - Mg

Authorization number: 3434-37/2009/2 from 16.09.2009

CalCin Mg is a natural inorganic fertilizer with secondary nutrients calcium (Ca) and magnesium (Mg).

Nutrient content:

  • 22 % of calcium (Ca), or 52-58 % of calcium carbonate (CaCO3)
  • 13 % of magnesium (Mg), or 40-45 % magnesium carbonate (MgCO3)

Use:
CalCin Mg is used as a fertilizer and as controler of pH value of soil. The fertilizer contains calcium (Ca) and magnesium (Mg). The pH value of the soil solution is an essential feature of the soil, which has an impact on the physical – chemical processes in the soil and on the physiological processes in plants. Since plants are withdrawing Ca and Mg from the soil leading to leaching, pH can be raised by adding fertilizer CalCin Mg and simultaneously reduce the acidity of the soil and returns Ca and Mg to soil, which are very important for light soil type.

Calcification is carried out in a state of dormancy period on the basis of previously conducted soil analysis (pH, organic matter, soil type) and the planned withdrawal of nutrients by crops in the autumn and also spring (month before sowing, at leatest three weeks after the application of herbicides and not at the same time as other fertilizers).

The recommended maximum single dose – for soil with 4% of humus:

Soil type Fertilizer dose
Light (sandy, loam-sandy) (400–600) kg/ha or (40– 60) g/m2
Medium heavy (clay, clay-loam) (600-1000) kg/ha or (60–100) g/m2
Heavy (clay-loam, clay) (1000-1500) kg/ha or (100–150) g/m2

Calcification is carried out every second year in a very acidic, light soil and every fourth year for the heavier, less acidic soil. In humidic conditions (high rainfall, irrigation) CalCin Mg is added each year, at the dose of 100 kg/ha.

The advantages of fertilizer CalCin Mg:

  • improvement of the long-term pH value of the soil and the structure of acidic soils (gas exchange in the soil is more effective),
  • mobilization of bound nutrients in the soil,
  • improvement of the capacity of soil to plant available water (reducing the impact of drought)
  • accelerated release of phosphorus (P),
  • significant improvement of soil fertility.

Quantities of fertilizer is spread evenly over the surface with the spreader for organic fertilizer, which has a hydraulically adjustable sliding chain and spreader plates. Smaller doses or area can be spreaded by hand.

Environmental protection and exposure controls
The product should not accidentally enter into the environment. In the case of increased dust formation, use personal protective equipment such as: protective clothing, anti-dust filter mask and glasses with side shield.
