PRIME SOURCE FOR BENEFICIAL SOIL AMENDMENT
As fertilizer, seed and other costs associated with planting increase, it is important that you – the farmer – get the most out of your crops. From corn to soybeans to wheat or alfalfa, it only makes sense to get the highest yield by having the correct soil. Testing your soils regularly and applying the proper amount of agricultural lime to your fields will help guarantee a successful crop.

Our lime is 100% natural and not a byproduct. Using ag lime appropriately is one of the most important running efforts in successful production. Excess soil acidity is a primary constraint to high, profitable yields and long-term soil productivity. Ag lime improves the physical, chemical and biological properties of soil. It also improves symbiotic nitrogen fixation for legumes, influences the availability of plant nutrients and reduces mineral element toxicities.
