Scientific Research Into The Benefits Of NatraMin Cal-S
At the University of Queensland, Dr Bernard Wehr and associates conducted a replicated trial that examined the effects of NatraMin Cal-S on soil properties and plant growth in 2017. Results showed that NatraMin Cal-S increased the soil’s plant available water content (PAWC) significantly over soil with no amendment applied (Control). Using NatraMin Cal-S resulted in an increase of up to 13.1% PAWC in soils, which was achieved by increasing the water content at field capacity (7.3% increase) or by increasing the capacity of the soil to hold water.
In these same trials, NatraMin Cal-S resulted in a 26.26% increase in dry shoot biomass (yield) over the control with an even more pronounced difference under the soil surface, where dry root biomass increased by more than 39% in NatraMin Cal-S treated soil. In addition to improving the health of the current plant, root growth also improves the health of the soil over time.
