Lime for everyday life

Limestone is an essential raw material

Agriculture

Lime is a vital part of achieving sustainable and more productive agriculture, both with livestock and farming.

Feed

Nordkalk's fodder lime products are made of the best and purest limestone. Nordkalk produces different fodder limes, feed limes in various fractions as well as lime for young and grown up poultry. The most important qualities are a high calcium content together with good dissolubility. 

Soil improvement

Agrilime

Nordkalk's agrilime products are finely ground or crushed and screened limestone depending on the   
raw  material. Agrilimes produced are rich in calcite or magnesium and are used for raising the pH levels of the soil quickly and efficiently. They are suitable for raising the pH level of fields while also functioning as a calcium and magnesium fertilizer.

The fertility of a soil is directly proportional to its lime content. Most field and garden plants need lime as nutrition as well as an absorbent of other nutrients. By improving plants' ability to absorb nutrients, Nordkalk products efficiently reduce the nutrient discharge into the water systems.   

Structure lime

Nordkalk FOSTOP® Structure lime is developed for fields that tend to silt up or have high phosphorus levels. Structure lime is more reactive and it dissolves quicker than normal agrilime, and it improves the structure of the field as well as cuts down the phosphorus runoff from fields to watercourses. Nordkalk's structure lime is a part of the FOSTOP concept developed by Nordkalk. The concept also includes other lime applications for agriculture and environmental care.
