How to Get Rid of Broom Sedge, Ragweed, Milk weed, Nettle and More



We all get tired of dealing with broom sedge, ragweed, nettle grasses, sand burs and more plaquing our
fields. Where herbicides like Grazon and 2-4D can help to kill these weeds for a season. The real issue is soil
pH. When soil becomes acidic it provides an optimal growing environment for weeds and slows growth of the
grasses you want growing.

AgriTec’s Pro-Cal and Adv-Cal are liquid solutions to liming the soil. They work just like lime, in the sense
that they go into the soil, raise calcium base saturation levels, pushing hydrogen out of the soil and
balancing soil pH. The only difference being that in liquid form you eliminate breakdown time so unlike dry
lime, you don’t have to wait a year for this to go to work. Additionally, liquid eliminates the negative
sediment that dry lime typically leaves in the soil.

“The two totes of liquid Calcium I bought did wonders on my pastures. I haven't ever seen anything like it.
My neighbors keep asking me what in the world did I do to my pastures and fields, it completely killed all my
weeds. This is the best hay I have ever had. My friends and neighbors will be calling you - I am telling
everyone." Charles S. | 2017

“You said this would get rid of my broom straw weeds and bring up my soil pH and it did just what you said
it would on 10 acres. So I am ordering 110 gal to use on my other fields. I want to try your BioActivator
next.” Martin T. | 2016

“I have 8 acres I tried Pro-Cal plus Form, I usually get 220 bales after applying ProCal and From I got 850
square bales. Many of my friends have called you to order. I am ordering for 150 acres. Great product!” Tom
S 2019

“Rob, just want you to know my grass has never looked so good. It’s the greenest grass I have ever had,
that Advance Cal really works. I am going to apply again in May again to keep it green.” Bill Craft 2018
"I put the 55-gal Liquid Calcium and BioActivator on my worst fields, well I am here to say that field look as
good or better than my best hay fields, thats why I am ordering a tote of Liquid Calcium and enough
BioActivator for all my fields. Never seen anything work like this." Ron R 2017

Pro-Cal and Advanced-Cal are on average HALF the cost of lime.


Equivalent to apply high grade ag lime

Raises soil pH

Balances soil base saturation

High carbon energy to increase growth rate


Same Benefits as Pro-Cal Plus:

Contains Humic Acid to provide organic matter to the soil

Increases nutrient availability in the soil and nutrient retention

Both our Bio-Active Liquid Calcium products come in ag grade liquid form. Meaning they can be applied
through a standard liquid sprayer with no risk of corrosion or plugging.
Pro-Cal and Advanced-Cal are chelated liquid calcium. Designed specifically for agriculture use.
We also offer custom blends. Let us know what you want in it, and we can make it for you.

more hay out of your fields.

All orders include free shipping and delivery. Call to speak with a local soil adviser for pricing and more
information on using liquid calcium to raise your soil pH levels and add liquid fertilizer to your growing
program to more effectively add nutrients to your soil.

How to Get Rid of Broom Sedge Ragweed Milk weed Nettle …

Raising the Ph while weeds are dormmate decreases the chance of them coming back in the spring.

Weeds are a sign of low Ph and calcium in your soil. Liquid calcium will deal with broom sedge, ragweed, nettle grasses, sand burs and more plaguing our fields. This is the time to bring up your soil calcium saturation levels while the plants are growing so that weed growth is inhibited next this Spring and Summer. 3 gal per acre of Bio-Liquid Calcium Or Advance Cal goes to work in one hour raising you soil calcium saturation level and pH . It has a 2-3 year soil life. It is pure liquid and can go through any sprayer. It is non corrosive and food grade, won't hurt livestock.

Choose the most economical liming material ( available Calcium , Liquid Calcium Chloride) when raising calcium is required. Do Not apply gypsum or Calcitic lime to Wisconsin soils to increase ca:ma ratio .

Is it important to have the proper ratio of calcium (Ca) and magnesium (Mg) in the soil? Producers may ask this question as they have their soil tested for nutrient levels in the summer before wheat planting begins. This question may also arise at the moment of lime purchase, which can be an important source of Ca and Mg.

Calcium and Mg are plant-essential nutrients. All soils contain Ca and Mg in the form of cations (positively charged ions, Ca++ and Mg++) that attach to the soil clay and organic matter; these are also the forms taken up by crops. The relative proportion of these elements, as well as the total amount in the soil, depends mainly on the soil parent material. In Kansas soils, the levels of Ca and Mg are typically high and crop deficiencies are rare.

Dr. H. B. Tukey, who was the head of the Department of Horticulture at Michigan State University, stated to the Joint Committee on Atomic Energy, for the 83rd Congress of the United States that when “we apply fertilizer nutrient materials to the above ground growing portion of the plant. We have seen that materials are absorbed by the plant and move rather freely in the plant. The amounts may at first seem relatively small, but to offset this handicap, the efficiency is high. In fact, this is the most efficient method of applying ferti-lizer to plants that we have yet discovered. If we apply these materials to the leaves in soluble forms, as much as 95 percent of what is applied may be used by the plant. If we apply a similar amount to the soil, we find about 10 percent of it to be used.”

4.5 times more nutrients will be available to the plant using 100 lbs of the liquid than 100 lbs of the same analysis in a dry fertilizer material.

“I was just about to call you guys. This Adv Cal worked amazing last year! I have no weeds left. My Hay production and quality greatly improved. Go ahead and send me two more. This is great stuff!” Gary M 2020

DON'T BE FOOLED BY IMITATIONS! only Advance Cal or ProCal BioLiquid Calcium are NOT CALCIUM NITRATE! Of all “liquid limes’, and other liquid calcium’s. Advanced Cal or ProCal BioLiquid Calcium have been proven to positively effect pH, cheaper and faster than lime or calcium nitrate. Calcium Nitrate has a tenancy to burn the plant if over applied. This is why it is usually recommended that 1 gal calcium nitrate to 30 gallons water, be applied. Three years ago, Agritec was approached to market calcium nitrate, but we declined due to the fact we could not find field studies, or University research, that showed calcium Nitrate effecting pH. According to University studies,

Be careful of over application OF CALCIUM NITRATE!

Nitrate poisoning can occur as the result of eating crops such as Brassicas, green cereals or sweet clover that contain high levels of nitrate. However, the most common source is inorganic nitrate fertilizer, either directly, via grazing an over-fertilized field, or via water run-off from heavily fertilized fields. Spring is the most common season for nitrate poisoning.

Nitrate poisoning occurs because the nitrate is broken down to nitrite in the rumen. In normal circumstances this nitrite is further broken down to ammonia in the rumen and is then used by the rumen microbes to make protein. However, when large amounts of nitrate are eaten over a short period of time, the nitrite accumulates in the rumen an...
