Wake Stone Corp Hi-Cal AgLime — Protect Your Investment

Balance Your Soil pH with Wake Stone Corp Hi-Cal AgLime: Nature’s Neutralizer

Calcium is essential to life. Of all the mineral elements necessary for plant growth, calcium is the most important because it is responsible for so many different functions in the soil surrounding the plant root.

Apply Wake Stone Hi-Cal AgLime and protect your investment, yield & environment!

Wake Stone Hi-Cal AgLime is produced and sold at our North Myrtle Beach Quarry and is also available at our Nash County Quarry.

Why is Calcium Important?

High Calcium in the soil:

  • Helps correct soil acidity
  • Helps improve soil structure to promote root growth and drought tolerance
  • Helps the soil overcome the harmful or toxic effects of excess soluble salts of magnesium, sodium, and potassium
  • Helps provide proper conditions for microbial growth
  • Helps regulate nutrient absorption into plants

What About Magnesium?

Wake Stone Hi-Cal AgLime is guaranteed at 35% elemental calcium with less than 1% magnesium. Magnesium is critical to plant life, but too much magnesium will impede plant growth. Calcium and Magnesium can NOW be applied separately and more effectively. With modern agriculture applications, nutrients are applied with greater accuracy to crop acreage. Crops get the nutrients exactly where they are needed. Investments are protected, yields are improved and the environment is safer from over application of fertilizers.

If farmers prefer to apply magnesium from dolomitic aglime, we recommend Wake Stone Hi-Cal AgLime be used in a rotation with dolomitic aglime to adjust the pH and prevent magnesium build-up in the soil.

Particle Size Matters

Aglime is perceived as slow acting with very little impact for several years. This is only true for larger particle size material. Wake Stone’s Hi-Cal AgLime is pulverized to meet particle size specifications for both South and North Carolina.
