JURAPOL liming:
soil acidification
in Poland - our
common problem

According to research conducted by the National Research Institute in Puławy, most of the soils in Poland show very high acidity and acidity reaction.

Such soil pH often makes it difficult or even impossible to cultivate plants effectively in these areas and leads to a decrease in their fertility.

How does acidification affect yield?

impairs the uptake and assimilation of important nutrients

reduces the amount of nutrients due to leaching of the soil profile

releases aluminum, which is toxic to plants, into the soil solution

limits the development of beneficial soil microorganisms

reduces the content of organic matter in the soil

promotes the activity of heavy metals and deteriorates the aggregate soil structure

Liming is an agrotechnical procedure positively affecting a wide spectrum of soil properties by regulating the pH resulting in the availability of individual nutrients.

The influence of liming on the soil

improves soil physical, chemical and biological properties

increases the content of organic matter in the soil, only soil with a regulated reaction accumulates humus

reduces the absorption of toxic heavy metals by plants, preventing root damage

stimulates the uptake and assimilation of important nutrients, such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, molybdenum and boron

regulates soil pH which increases the efficiency of multi-component mineral fertilizers

strengthens plants and protects them from diseases, improves quantity and quality of crops

If you want your agricultural production to be effective, use JURAPOL calcium fertilizers

Calcium fertilizer JURAPLON

Is the most universal lime for soil pH regulation. It is obtained from natural, fragmented calcium rocks. It releases active nutrients longer, so does not have a negative effect on the biological life in the soil. If you do not know what to choose – this will definitely be the safest and best choice.

Calcium-magnesium fertilizer JURAMAGNE

Is a ground rock containing calcium compounds and significant amounts of magnesium. It will be the best choice if you only want to slightly increase the ground pH and cheaply supplement magnesium deficiencies in the soil at the same time

Moreover, there are many calcium fertilizers available on the market, but each of them will work in different conditions

Calcium nitrate

Is a nitrogen-calcium fertilizer. It works well in foliar feeding of plants suffering from calcium deficiency (e.g. to prevent physiological diseases of apples, tomatoes, peppers, lettuce). This fertilizer does not acidify the soil environment, but is not suitable for soil deacidification. It should be treated only as a source of nitrogen and calcium for plants.

Oxide lime

is a quickly working calcium fertilizer that therefore causes sudden changes in soil pH, which in fact is not required. This form of agricultural lime should be used in lower doses,
mainly on heavy soils.

Basalt meal

Is ground volcanic rock. Due to the low amount of calcium, it is not considered as a calcium fertilizer. However, it is used in high doses and not only helps to supplement the deficiencies of microelements in barren soil, but also to slightly increase its pH.
