Foremula™ LiquaLime

Product Downloads pdf

Foremula™ LiquaLime is a liquid carbonate with three different calcium sources and sulfur from Thiosulfate. It is an alternative and supplement to granular calcium carbonate applications. Foremula™ LiquaLime supplies highly soluble and available calcium to the plant and soil, which displaces soil sodium and chloride. Compared to conventional Calcium Carbonate (Limestone), the calcium solubility of Foremula™ LiquaLime is dramatically greater.

  • Displaces Sodium
  • Displaces Chloride
  • Increases water Electrical Conductivity (EC)
  • Increases pH of Irrigation Water when injected
  • Promotes photosynthesis by generating carbon dioxide
  • Fast-release & Intermediate-release calcium
  • Enhances nutrient availability for low pH soil
  • Alkaline tank buffer
  • Decreases SAR (Sodium Absorption Ratio) of Irrigation Water when injected

Foremula™ LiquaLime releases low doses of carbon dioxide from the soil that bathes the turf blade. Carbon dioxide is critical to enhancing photosynthesis during low light and sub-optimal conditions.  

Tank mixing with phosphate product is not recommended. 

Directions for Use:

Greens, Tees and Fine Turf: Apply 3.0 - 6.0 oz. of FOREMULA™ LiquaGyp with 1.0 - 2.0 gallons of water per 1,000 sq.ft. throughout the growing season. At higher application rates, irrigate for approximately3 minutes to work the nutrients into the soil. Irrigate that night.

Fairways and Sports Turf: Apply 1.0 - 3.0 gallons of FOREMULA™ LiquaGyp with 44 - 88 gallons of water per acre. (3.0 - 12.0 oz with 1 - 2 gallons of water per 1,000 sq.ft.)

Soil Flush: Apply up to 12 oz of FOREMULA™ LiquaLime every 28 days throughout the growing season. Irrigate for 60 minutes for capillary action (capillarity). If heavy puddling occurs, pulse and pause irrigation as necessary.

Injection Rate: Use FOREMULA™ LiquaLime to increase Electrical Conductivity (EC) and supply available Calcium. Inject at a rate of 1 gallon per 10,000 to 20,000 gallons of irrigation water applied.
