Growing vegetables can be far more successful if you take care of the right condition of the soil and use the right fertilisers. One interesting option is lime fertilisers. What is worth knowing about them? And how should they be applied? We discuss this topic in our article.
Lime fertilisers – what do you need to know?
The lime fertilisers we offer are very effective products for regulating the pH of the soil. They increase the assimilability of phosphorus, potassium and magnesium, as well as trace elements. This, in turn, translates into less absorption of heavy metals and, at the same time, an increase in the quality and quantity of the vegetables grown.
Depending on their type, calcium fertilisers can either be responsible for regulating the soil pH or act as a nutrient. Their application makes the soil more fertile, reduces the number of weeds and plant diseases are significantly less frequent.
How do you apply lime to vegetables?
But how do you apply lime under vegetables? Here are some tips to keep in mind:
- choose high-quality lime fertilisers which are formulated with professional ingredients and really have an effect,
- products should be selected according to the type of soil, including the degree of acidity of the soil,
- liming is best carried out in autumn (after the vegetation has finished), in winter (during dormancy) and in early spring (before the vegetation resumes),
- liming should not be combined with nitrogen fertilisation and should be carried out no more than once every two years.
