What is Dolomite?

Dolomite is a term used by geologists to describe rocks containing Carbonates of Calcium and Magnesium.

What does Dolomite do?

  • Dolomite neutralises soil acidity.
  • Provides the element Calcium essential to maintain plant cell functions.
  • Provides Magnesium essential for chlorophyll production.
  • Stimulates microbacterial activity in the soil to aid plant nutrient availability.
  • Dolomite helps to ensure the breakdown of organic matter and increases the availability of nitrogen to plants.
  • The availability of molybdenum is improved by the use of dolomite on acid soils.

Why use Dolomite?

  • Correct the symptoms of Magnesium deficiency in bananas, citrus, tomatoes, potatoes, cauliflowers and cereals.
  • Neutralise soil acidity caused by frequent application of ammonia and nitrogen based fertilizers.
  • Promote efficient conservation of essential nutrients by soil bacteria.
  • Restore the critical soil balance by normal cropping.
  • Condition & conserve soil.
