Verde-Cal Enhanced Gypsum, Lime & K-Plus

The Verde-Cal range of soil amendments, distributed exclusively by Fernland throughout Australia, represents opportunities for all Golf and Sporting clubs, Lawn care professionals, Landscapers and Growers to improve the soil profile, save money, time and ultimately get accustomed to working with healthier turf.

Are you interested in saving money and working more efficiently?

  • For every 4 bags of standard gypsum or lime you purchase, you only need to buy 1 bag of Verde-Cal.
  • Verde-Cal products require less irrigation and fewer applications - resulting in less interruption to play.
  • Verde-Cal products are very soluble, and dissolve within 8–10 minutes with just one irrigation cycle. How many times have you applied standard gypsum or lime just to collect it all when you mow?
  • Verde-Cal products get to work in the soil almost immediately while standard gypsum and lime can just sit there.
  • Verde-Cal products offer significantly better rates per hectare.
  • Which would you rather apply, 11 bags of Verde-Cal (249 kg) per hectare or 44 bags of Standard gypsum or lime (1000 kg)? 11 of course!
  • Verde-Cal products are very target-orientated and there is no need to mix with topdressing sand.
  • Verde-Cal products contain thCa™ (an organic complexing agent) which helps to dissolve the calcium to allow for better uptake and immediate availability. Standard gypsum and lime can take 2-3 years to break down.
  • Verde-Cal products contain Aqua-Aid wetting agents, ensuring the calcium applied enters the soil where it is needed, creating better nutrient movement into the soil profile. By using Verde-Cal, it conditions the main root zone where the standard gypsum or lime only treats the top, usually only 25 mm of soil.

If all of the above information has not convinced you to switch to Verde-Cal, please consider the further following benefits:

  • Verde-Cal products will save you more than money – not factoring in savings you have already made on fuel, time management, wear and tear, storage and labour, the Verde-Cal products still cost less per hectare compared with using traditional gypsum and lime applications.
  • 100% Homogenous, uniformed particle size
  • Less storage space needed. One of our bags (22.68 kg) will give you at least equal if not better results than 4 bags of standard gypsum or lime.
  • Verde-Cal products will reduce excessive salts, bi-carbonates and black layering.
  • Verde-Cal products increase photosynthesis
