Lime fertilizer

Dry and wet, fine lime fertilizers, with and without magnesium and in various grades of fineness… in short, Sibelco Europe MineralsPlus always has the right lime fertilizer for your needs. The most important function of lime fertilizers is to restore and maintain the pH value of the soil. Comprehensive research has shown that an optimal pH value results in an optimal crop yield. Consistent liming of soils is therefore crucial for a healthy crop. Sibelco Europe MineralsPlus is the Benelux market leader in high-quality lime fertilizers for agricultural and forestry purposes.
