| May 9, 2014

Solu-Cal USA has received OMRI Listing for its flagship product, Solu-Cal Enhanced Calcitic Lime. Granted by the Organic Materials Review Institute, OMRI Listing is granted only for products that meet the criteria for use in certified organic production. OMRI Listed products undergo a review to ensure that they comply with organic standards. The OMRI review verifies product credibility and allows customers to confidently choose products for organic production. Solu-Cal joins a group of products included in the OMRI Listing and held to the highest standards in organic accountability.

The Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) supports organic integrity by providing organic certifiers, growers, manufacturers, and suppliers an independent review of products intended for use in certified organic production, handling, and processing. Solu-Cal Enhanced Calcitic Lime is included in the Crop Fertilizers and Soil Amendments Classification and Calcium Carbonate category.

Solu-Cal Enhanced Calcitic Lime is a brand of calcium-enriched lime for quick and efficient soil adjustment. Solu-Cal works rapidly to adjust soil pH in as little as six to eight weeks. The use of patented PHCA Organic Humic/Fulvic Acid Technology in Solu-Cal significantly increases the availability of applied and stored nutrients in the soil. Proven to be 75 percent more effective than traditional pelleted lime, one 50-pound bag of Solu-Cal Enhanced Calcitic Lime is equally as effective as four 50-pound bags of standard lime. In addition, Solu-Cal Enhanced Calcitic Lime is treated with a coating that results in less dust during application than untreated pelletized products.
