Dolomite Soil Sweetener and Conditioner
Dolomite will correct Magnesium deficiencies and neutralise soil acidity with the application of Premium Grade Dolomite-100% natural, Australian mined calcium magnesium carbonate.
Dolomite is an economical way to increase the soil pH in acidic soils (sweetens the soil) and to raise magnesium levels in deficient soils. Dolomite also adds calcium and helps to improve soil structure and increases the availability of some trace elements.
Applying calcium in isolation can induce a magnesium deficiency (Ca:Mg ratio). Even though calcium is a very important nutrient in the soil, in isolation it can also reduce the availability of potash and phosphate, as well as manganese, molybdenum, boron, zinc and iron. The balance between calcium and magnesium is important, from a pH and a nutritional perspective, but also because they influence the soil structure.Qld Organics Dolomite:
