Huma-Cal is made up of Humalfa’s quality
finished compost with a blend of sugar
beet lime. With this paring we have
created the ultimate soil amendment for
acidic soils, or those soils dealing with
Aluminum toxicity issues. Although
Humalfa already has a large amount of
Calcium, when the lime is blended we
have increased the Calcium level of the
amendment by 400%. Humalfa
compost\typically has 34 pounds of
Calcium per ton. The blend of 2 ton of
compost with1 ton of Sugar beet by-
product lime we have increased the
Calcium level up to 340 pounds per ton.
Calcium neutralizes soil acidity, and
increases the movement of N-P-K into
the plant. Soils become acidic because
the cations on the soil colloids, mainly calcium, are replaced by hydrogen ions. Calcium and Aluminum compete for plant uptake, and when Calcium is leached highly acid soils can result from Aluminum saturation. In acidic soils, soluble Calcium will move rapidly to the lower root zone, and can help offset the toxic effects of aluminum.
Calcium increases water penetration and improves soil drainage.The pH scale ranges
from 0 to 14, with pH 7 being neutral; pH values below 7 are acid and pH values above 7 are alkaline. When a pH is 6 in a soil that is ten times as acid as pH at 7, We have improved pH with one application of Huma-Cal by a point which is proving this product has long-term benefit. Improving soil quality with Huma-Cal will help eliminate aluminum-toxicity issues.
