BioLiquid Calcium

Post by kenny thomas » Sun Jun 23, 2019 8:50 am

See lots of adds about this product. One guy here says it's working great. I have some steep ground that's hard to spread lime on. Anyone use it or have more ideas on it?

There is a guy in my area promoting a liquid calcium bot sure without looking if it is the same one. A friend tried a small area this year and said they saw no difference in hay production although he said it might have gotten put on too late. I knew a guy that said you could never get much out of a liquid product like that. his thoughts were when it says say 1 quart per acre that you are literally only putting a few pounds of whatever the product per acre is. He did say that micronutrients are a different thing than lime and fertilizer though.

Are you talking calcium nitrate?

Reading further it seems more like it's a fast acting lime product. Works fast but might need applying more often.

Calcium nitrate works well in hard to
reach areas as a Foliar spray and relatively cheap. Provides both N and calcium.

My uncle bought a few 55 gal drums of it and put on a hay field. He sprayed it on late winter. He wasn’t impressed with it.

It’s like 50 bucks for 25 pounds it mixes
5 pounds to 100 gallons that is roughly an acre worth. It’s a foliar spray kinda like liquid N. It is short acting for low ph. Like this year there is no way to get a lime truck to my back pasture
