For treating soil that's too acidic (commonly knows as "sweetening" the soil), it's tough to beat the power and efficiency of the Dolomite Lime powder supplied by Greenway Biotech. Since Dolomite Lime is particularly slow-acting by adding it to the soil well before you plant, you'll foster a healthy environment for vegetation. It's made of 22.7 percent calcium and 11.8 percent magnesium, both of which many organisms require. Besides allowing you to adjust pH level of your soil, Dolomite Lime also has below applications:
- As a component in a nutritious fertilizer mix
- In speeding up the composting process by encouraging decomposition
- For enriching animal feed
- In magnesium-deficient terrain
Apple, citrus, and pear trees are just some of the trees that really enjoy the addition of Dolomite Lime to their nutrition.
Garden Beds: Use between 2 pounds and 10 pounds per 100 sq.ft. – the lower rate for sandy soils, the higher rate for heavy organic soils. Repeat after 6 months if necessary.
Lawns: Apply an equal amount of Dolomite in Winter to the total amount of lawn food applied during the year.
