15L Plant Doctor Micronised Liquid Lime
39.4% pure calcium, can be immensely valuable when calcium is deficient. Calcium is the king of minerals.
Increase soil pH more quickly and efficiently than traditional Lime.
A high-analysis source of micronised lime combined in a free-flowing suspension with fulvic acid. Calcium is the trucker of all minerals and virtually all crops will benefit from a calcium supplement during the crop phase.
- Australian Certified Organic (ACO) Registered Farm Input 456AI (Restricted).
- Enhances crop quality.
- More convenient than limestone.
- A “fast food” source of calcium.
- Calcium is “the trucker” of nutrients – increasing calcium levels will also increase uptake of other elements.
- Ideal whenever a nitrogen free calcium boost is required.
- Micronised Liquid Lime is a “spoon feeding” option for light, sandy soils with poor retention of calcium.
- Calcium is considered one of the “Big Four” elements that should be maintained at luxury levels throughout the crop cycle.
- Calcium is required for cell strength and optimum plant health.
- Valuable in horticulture where constant use of NPK fertilisers may compromise calcium uptake.
Soil Ameliorant or Fertigation:
10 – 50 L/ha as required. Use higher rate for soil amelioration
1 L per 100 L water up to 5 L/ha equivalent. Apply weekly or as required
Orchards & Vineyards
1 L per 100 L water up to 7 L/ha equivalent. Apply every 2 – 4 weeks or as required
Ornamentals & Turf
1 L per 100 L water up to 5 L/ha equivalent. Apply every 2 – 4 weeks or as required
1 – 3 L/ha in 60 – 100 L water, depending on canopy closure, apply as required
1 – 3 L/ha in 60 – 100 L water, apply as required
50 mL per 10 L water, apply as required
2 – 5 L/ha
Use a minimum dilution rate of 1 part product to 3 parts water. Rate will depend on crop, row spacing & soil type. Always consider N & P crop requirements for starters based on reliable soil test data.
Home Garden Application:
Dilute 45 mL per 9 L watering can and apply the diluted mix at a rate of 1 litre per square metre – this diluted mix can also be poured over foliage. Repeat every 2 – 4 weeks or as required.

Shake or stir well before use & maintain constant agitation.
It is advisable to pre-mix, adding this product slowly while maintaining agitation in spray tank to prevent settling of solids. Will pass through 200 micron filter under ideal conditions, however, a coarse inline filter (500 microns/35 mesh) is recommended to ensure the delivery lines are free from particle contaminants from other sources. Where higher water rates are required for good foliar coverage, do not exceed maximum product rate per hectare. This product will leave a visible residue on leaves and fruit when used as a foliar. Avoid spraying close to harvest if produce is susceptible to staining. Sensitive foliage or plants should be test sprayed prior to full scale application. Frequencies are a guideline only and can be adjusted according to farm practices and/or in conjunction with crop monitoring. Ensure suitable spray conditions (e.g. temperature, humidity, wind-speed), prior to foliar application. Compatibility and/or performance cannot be guaranteed when combined with other products. Jar test for compatibility and spray test on small area before wide-spread use.
STORAGE & HANDLING
Store in a cool dry area out of direct sunlight. This product has been tested to store safely down to 5ºC. Sedimentation may occur below 5ºC. Do not pre-mix or store in diluted form. This product may be very heavy and every care should be taken when handling it to avoid back injury.
