Field Application

Applicators that are used to spread lime can also be used to spread PRO CAL 40.

PRO CAL 40 has a very fine particle size nearly all passing a 200 mesh screen. This has agronomic benefits, however, it makes application more challenging. PRO CAL 40 contains about 25% moisture when delivered from PGLA. This moisture level allows this fine of material to be spread without a dusting problem. Gypsum also has an affinity for itself so it will tend to form little BBs or clumps when thrown from the spinners.

Application of PRO CAL 40 is done by many retail dealers in our marketing area. Click here for a list of retail dealers that apply PRO CAL 40 in your area. If you as a retail dealer have interest in offering PRO CAL 40 to your customers please give us a call.

For those retail dealers that do not have equipment to spread PRO CAL 40, we provide the service to spread the product for them. Soil Solutions owns and operates four spinner type spreader applicators. All four of these spreaders work fine for spreading the PRO CAL 40.

In addition to the floater type applicators we also have three pull-type carts with BBI boxes for rent to our farmer customers. These work very well for those clients that would like to spread their own. They have PTO driven hydraulics that operate both the spinners and the chain web.

Cricket Applicator

Soil Solutions also owns a BBI Cricket applicator for turf grass application or for rent to golf courses. It works very nice for those clients that don’t want the heavy equipment or have smaller areas to spread.
