I'm going to take a stab at it, but it is only and educated guess. CaCO3 is a
"buffer", which means that it tends to reduce acidity by reacting chemically
with acids in your water, and thereby forming some hydrogen-containing
compound. Usually that compound is simply water (H2O). A potential acidity
of 400lb per tons would logically imply that if you had a ton of this
fertilizer, it would reduce the same amount of acidity as 400 lbs of CaCO3.
Again, I reiterate, this is a guess, but it seems reasonable to me.
