Oceans, glaciers, volcanos & giants…A look @ Iowa’s past

One of the many reasons Calcium Products has premium products is the extremely high-quality, pure limestone and gypsum we use. I thought it’d be interesting to share some of Iowa’s history that made our lime and gypsum so amazing. It also contributes to the rich Iowa farmland we hear lots about. Check out this article from IPTV about the land history. Below is an excerpt: Iowa has been under water in one form or another for much of its history. Ancient seas covered Iowa while it was located near the equator. For millions of years, the continental plate on which Iowa sits has slowly wandered around the globe. At one time the plate split apart, creating a rift. Then it moved back together. Several other times, it crashed into other plates. These crashes caused parts of the land to get pushed up out of the water. These earth-quaking events often formed mountains. The…

GCSAA members – the unseen heroes of many a golf course!

Golf Course superintendents’ work is often seen, but they are rarely seen or their work realized. It is not an uncommon practice for the maintenance staff at a golf facility to be up working well before the sun comes up. As a PGA member since 1999, I certainly appreciate the hard work and dedication it takes to be in the golf industry, but I know it takes even more hard work and dedication to be in charge of the grounds and maintenance. More times than not, GCSAA members and their colleagues do not get the accolades they deserve. I consider golf course superintendents the unsung heros of the golf industry. Next time you see your golf course superintendent keep in mind, their jobs are often 24/7 shifts. It takes time, patience, flexibility, and supreme organization to manage 100 acres or more of managed turf, not to mention their staff and…

Too early to apply?

WOW, what a treat! Most of America is enjoying a very warm, early spring! I know everyone is itching to get outdoors and kick off the season. While it is still too early in most parts north of the Mason-Dixon line to begin your early spring fertilizations, it is never too early to begin spreading SuperCal SO4. One of the great characteristics of organic, all-natural products is not having to depend on mother nature for an application schedule. Take our SuperCal SO4, for example. It is a naturally mined, organic material that works beautifully with any fertility program. You can apply it any time throughout the year. You don’t have to wait for the frost to be out of the ground, you don’t have to wait for the ground temperature to hit a magical degree in order for the product to work. Our SuperCal SO4 can be applied, left alone…

Not just a Calcium Products company…

With my job and I am very fortunate to travel all across this great country of ours. I have an opportunity to meet people from all walks of life and introduce them to Calcium Products, Inc. Typically, I give them my 30 second elevator speech about who Calcium Products are and then depending on who I am talking with I will expand into a more detailed account of our company. Most people can figure out what we do simply by looking at our company name, but we are so much more than that. While calcium certainly plays a huge role in our base ingredients for manufacturing we actually blend 9 of the 16 essential  plant nutrients in our base calcium products. You could make a very strong case however we blend  12 out of 16 if you include Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen. If you are going to be growing anything,…
