processed dried egg shell as a calcium substitute

Asked February 7, 2019, 5:01 PM EST

Saw an ad for processed dried egg shell to be used instead of lime. Cost $35 per ton plus trucking. Can you give me any info as to its cal. content, breakdown time, cost comparative to lime at $6 per ton and any adverse effects.
