Several agricultural regulations have been implemented due to initiatives taken by H Pistorius & Co. The most important regulation is that a resin analysis must be displayed on any agricultural lime registration. The resin analysis refers to ENVIS: Effective Neutralization Visible In Soil

 

The resin analysis highlights to the problem that some agricultural-limes resolve 100% in the traditional strong acid test method (HCI – 5000 time stronger that soil acid), but as little as 11% dissolve in soil.

 

H Pistorius & Co has also been actively involved in lime research.

 

Our lime-resources are well located in South Africa and are primarily used in Gauteng, Limpopo, Mpumalanga. Kwa-Zulu Natal and Eastern Free State.
