Get to Know Our Products
Our expert team members at Norstar Industries offers a variety of different products to improve soil nutrients, resulting in higher yielding quality crops. We can help you decide which product is best for you. We offer:
- Agriculture Lime (Ag Lime): This lime-based product, consisting of Calcium Carbonate, is typically used to neutralize the pH of acidic soils. While, reducing harmful levels of aluminum, iron, and manganese. Ag Lime supports crop production by increasing the available water holding capacity in soils, promoting plant and root growth.
- Agricultural Gypsum (Gypsum): This Calcium Sulphate product acts as a great fertilizer ideal for those soils deficient in both Calcium and Sulfur. While, reducing the excess soil salinity that causes poor crop yields.
- Cement Kiln Dust (CKD): This newly implemented soil amendment product is a by-product of the cement manufacturing industry. CKD mainly consists of limestone, calcium oxide, and magnesium. This well-rounded product is used to increase the soils pH to a suitable level. Sequentially, triggering the nutrient cycle and amplifying the uptake of those critical nutrients, therefore, enhancing crop quality and yields.
Since the application of our soil amendment products hinder on the initial soil quality, a representative soil sample is a must.
