We crush lime to 70 microns to maximise the surface area, then press it into a pellet, so you get fine lime exactly where you want it
Our pellets break down readily and get to work quickly, improving soil structure and pH levels
Fine lime is safely and effectively blended with the nutrients and fertilisers to perfectly meet your requirements
With less bulk you'll need fewer trucks – plus, with accurate placement and 100% utilisation you’ll need to spend less per hectare
Fine lime pellets are 100% utilised and spread evenly
However, the fine particles are difficult to spread and prone to drift. Optimise is 100% ultra-fine lime, pulverised to an average of 70 microns and pressed into a pellet for ease of transport and application. It’s ideal for getting the most return from your lime and lime-based fertiliser spend.
Calcium is critical for improving aeration, water filtration, and allowing roots to penetrate deeper into the soil. Soil biology responds to good soil structure and air spaces, active soil microbes reuse and recycle plant and animal waste, and mean fewer chemicals are necessary.
Optimise is used by pastoral, arable, horticultural and viticultural operations throughout NZ. You won’t need any special equipment. Optimise is compatible with conventional ground spreading and drilling equipment.
Optimise is ideal for spreading by air – with a lot less bulk, it ensures the safe release of the load for top dressing pilots.
The reduced volume means fewer trucks on the road, and you’ll pay less in transport costs.
DIY Optimise applications are simple. Use existing tow-behind spreading equipment, just like you would apply Urea, and reduce the heavy traffic burden of bulk trucks.
Minimum order 500kg. Contact your local farm merchant for 25kg bags.
We quote in hectares rather than tonnes because you use less – up to 10x less than traditional Ag Lime. Many save 50% by using Optimise rather than conventional Ag Lime and pay less for transport. See what savings you’ll make on our handy cost calculator.
Optimise gets to work straightway to improve your pH level. Applying Optimise every 12-18 months is the best way to reach your pH and calcium targets and maintain them. You can apply Optimise 2 or 3 times for the same cost as one application of Ag Lime.
