Further information

Lime is a soil amendment product used to condition soil by raising pH levels. It is made from crushed limestone that contains natural nutrients to promote healthy plant growth. When lime is added to agricultural crops, it dissolves and releases a base that counteracts or neutralizes soil acidity.

Composition Calcium Carbonate
Reduces Levels of Manganese and IronBy applying agricultural lime to crops, you can help to increase the soil’s pH level by neutralizing and reducing the levels of manganese and iron that cause soil to become acidic.
Boosts Microbial Activity The agricultural lime effect on crops allows it to create a better environment to promote microbial activity to improve healthy crop growth.
Improves Plant StructureWith a balanced pH level in the soil, the crop, especially young plants, can grow stronger overall.
Provides Calcium and MagnesiumAgricultural lime actively supplements calcium and/or magnesium levels in the soil. These are essential nutrients to ensuring healthy plant growth.
Provides a Return on InvestmentA single application of agricultural lime can last up to several years. During these years, your crops will produce better yields, which translates to more product and/or better product to sell.
Increases Nutrient Uptake in Roots A neutral or neutralized soil provides a healthy environment for plants to improve their nutrient uptake.
Strengthens Root SystemAs roots take up a greater volume of nutrients, they begin to thrive and strengthen throughout the whole root system.
Improves Nitrogen Fixation in LegumesFor legume crops like soybeans, agricultural lime can help improve nitrogen fixation. This is the process by which bacteria that live within the legume roots are able to convert atmospheric nitrogen into nutrients which crops can use.
Improves Fertilizer/Herbicide EfficiencyWhen the soil becomes too acidic, it prevents herbicides from functioning properly. Acidic soil can also decrease fertilizer efficiency.
Reduces Toxicity LevelsUltimately, applying lime to agricultural crops will eliminate the state of toxicity that the plants are experiencing. Acidic soil is toxic for plants. Over time, acidic soil will kill crops.
