• Because Dicalcic has a low water solubility combined with a relatively high citric-solublity, nutrient release is controlled by the plant. By using acid in the soil, P is made available as and when the plant needs it, rather than washing away in the soil with rainfall.
  • This is very different to superphosphates, which are highly water-soluble and release their nutrients in contact with water. This can mean an oversupply of P to the plant impacting soil condition and optimum plant growth. It can also mean a lot of the P can simply be washed away, unused, in rainy conditions.
  • The lime in Dicalcic and its citric-solubility help to neutralise soil pH creating the ideal conditions for fast, continuous growth.

Dicalcic offers a slower, sustained release of nutrients so you can be sure your fertiliser investment is being used to maximum effect.
