PERLKA (Calcium Cyanamide Fertiliser)

Product Information

The perfect fertiliser for a range of vegetable plants. Perlka is a unique nitrogenous fertiliser manufactured from natural raw materials; coal, limestone and atmospheric nitrogen. When combined by electricity these materials form a well-proven nitrogen fertiliser. Perlka composition is 19.8% nitrogen (N) 50% lime (CaO) 1.5% magnesium (MgO) The lime in Perlka in the form of calcium oxide when in contact with water this calcium quickly turns into lime hydrate Ca(OH)2 which is strongly alkaline. The lime in Perlka is therefore extremely active and positively influences the physical, chemical and biological properties of soils, as well as improving fertility. This combined with the distinctive nitrogen in Perlka helps revitalise soils which have been heavily cropped with vegetables. Full instructions supplied on an enclosed leaflet. I have used Perlka on my land with brassicas for the past two years and I have found that the Cauliflowers are more vigorous, the resulting heads were heavier and the roots were free from any traces of club root.

£6.55 per 1Kg bucket

 

 OTHER USES:

 SOFT AND TOP FRUIT

 Perlka is an ideal fertiliser for all types of fruit.  Its long cycle of nitrogen release coupled with the availability of calcium helps produce top quality healthy yields.

 

 

     Allow at least 10 days between applying Perlka and seed sowing or transplanting.

Adding Phosphate and Potash fertilisers with your Perlka will give plants more vital nutrients for healthy crops.
