Dolomite powder, UNICARB DNS400 is a limestone compound that contains calcium and magnesium, provides valuable nutrients to plants and helps change the pH of the soil by raising it to match the plants’ needs. It’s sometimes called dolomitic lime or dolomitic limestone and provides more nutrients than straight lime. It’s often used in addition to balanced fertilizers, particularly with seeding fruit.

Dolomite’s reaction with acid also makes it useful. It is used for acid neutralization in the chemical industry, in stream restoration projects, and as a soil conditioner. Dolomite is used as a source of magnesia (MgO), a feed additive for livestock, a sintering agent and flux in metal processing, and as an ingredient in the production of glass, bricks, and ceramics.
