Soils and their contents vary greatly across the state and in your own area. Before you add calcium to your soil I would suggest getting your soil tested to actually understand if you need calcium or not. You may want to contact the Wyandot County Extension Office and inquire about local soil testing facility in your area. Phone: 419-294-4931
