Use Liquid Calcium This Planting Season

Use Liquid Calcium This Planting Season

It’s nearly planting season! As you gear up to sow new seeds, prepare your soil to provide the best possible environment for your crops to thrive. A key tip that we at AgriTec International recommend is that you use liquid calcium this planting season. Liquid calcium can play such an essential role in preparing your soil for the upcoming planting season.

Understanding Soil pH

Soil pH is a critical factor in determining your soil’s fertility. It influences nutrient availability and the activity of microorganisms essential for nutrient transformation. However, soil can become too acidic or alkaline over time due to various factors. Regular monitoring and adjusting are vital when sustaining pH balance, optimal nutrient absorption and healthy crop growth.

Why Is Liquid Calcium Essential?

An adequate supply of calcium significantly enhances crop health and yield, but liquid calcium has many benefits over granular calcium. Liquid calcium is a highly soluble form of calcium used to improve soil properties in multiple ways. The solubility of liquid calcium ensures that the calcium is quickly available for plant absorption, which strengthens cellular structure, root development, and nutrient uptake.

Soil Health & Crop Yield

The foundation of successful agriculture is healthy soil, which affects not only chemical composition but also physical structure and biological activity. Soil that is rich in calcium promotes robust root development, enabling plants to access water and nutrients from deeper layers. This is crucial for consistent growth under various weather conditions.

Steps to Assess and Improve Soil Calcium Levels

Apply at the Right Time : During planting season, the optimal time to apply liquid calcium is just before planting to prepare the soil for seed germination.

Conduct Soil Tests : Start by testing your soil to determine the existing calcium levels and whether any amendments are needed.

Choose the Right Product: AgriTec International offers a variety of products that were all created with the purpose of maintaining soil health and improving your crop yields.

Traditional agricultural limestone has been used to manage soil calcium levels and pH for decades, and not without good reason. However, liquid calcium offers most of the same positive effects as lime alongside several advantages:

Faster Absorption: Its liquid form allows for quicker absorption by both soil and plants.

Easier Application: It can be applied with standard farming equipment, eliminating the need for specialized machinery.

Better pH Control: Liquid calcium enables more precise adjustments of soil pH; keeping it between 6 and 7 tends to reflect a well-balanced pH level.

More Efficient: Per acre, a mere 2 gallons of AgriTec International’s liquid products equate to 1 tons of traditional limestone.

Integrating Liquid Calcium into Your Fertilization Plan

For effective soil management, AgriTec recommends integrating liquid calcium into your regular fertilization routine. It can be combined with other nutrients to ensure a comprehensive nutrient profile for your crops. Consult with one of AgriTec’s soil advisors to ensure that you tailor the best application schedule and nutrient combination for your specific crop types and regional conditions.

Long-term Benefits

The benefits of using liquid calcium extend beyond the immediate planting cycle. It improves soil structure, enhances water retention, and increases disease and pest resistance in plants, reducing the need for chemical treatments.

Tips for Maximum Effectiveness

Follow Manufacturer’s Guidelines: Adhere strictly to the recommended dosage and application methods. Adding too much or to little of anything can end up having negative effects on your crops.

Monitor Soil pH Regularly: Keep track of the soil pH to ensure your efforts are effective.

Rotate Crops: Different crops have different calcium requirements. Crop rotation helps prevent excessive depletion of soil calcium, and also helps keep pests at bay.

Environmental Benefits of Liquid Calcium

Using liquid calcium also benefits the environment. Unlike traditional lime, which can run off into water sources, liquid calcium’s solubility ensures it remains in the soil, minimizing impact on nearby aquatic life. Additionally, healthier soils with better water retention capabilities reduce runoff and soil erosion. The agricultural industry continually evolves, and so do products like liquid calcium. Newer liquid calcium formulations are being developed to offer even greater solubility and enhanced plant uptake. Staying informed about these innovations can provide farmers with a competitive edge in crop production.


Preparing your soil with liquid calcium is a smart move for any farmer looking to enhance crop yield and ensure soil health. AgriTec International is committed to providing you with high-quality products and information to make the most of your planting season. Here’s to a fruitful harvest!
