LIME WILL RAISE YOUR SOIL pH

If your soil results indicate that the soil is too acidic for your crop, you can raise the pH of the soil with lime to increase alkalinity.  We find it is easier to apply pelletized, not powdered, lime.

  2. Follow soil test recommendations or broadcast lime evenly at the rate of one pound of lime per 110 square feet .Broadcast the lime evenly over the soil.

Follow soil test recommendations  broadcast lime at the rate of one pound of lime per 110 square feet .  Rake into top 3-4 inches of soil.
