Widely used by growers and farmers in Europe and Australia, Calciprill is now available in New Zealand. Calciprill is a 2-6mm finely ground high purity lime bound into granules using molasses as the binder. It is manufactured in Te Kuiti.

Available in 1 tonne slingbags and in bulk.

Calciprill is a low dust, easy to spread using your own fertiliser spreading equipment for a more timely application. Can be direct drilled or air seeded to aid crop establishment. It is ideal for aerial topdressing in hill country.

Dissolves rapidly on contact with moisture. Once dissolved it starts working within 6 to 8 weeks of application.

Regular annual applications of Calciprill will aid in the maintenance of soil pH.
