    Lime can improve crop yield and the root system of plants and grass where soils are acidic.
    It does this by making the soil more basic, allowing the plants to absorb more nutrients.
    Lime is not a fertilizer but can be used in combination with fertilizers.
    limes have common applications in agriculture and gardening, including dolomitic lime and hydrated lime.
    In livestock farming, hydrated lime can be used as a disinfectant measure, producing a dry and alkaline environment in which bacteria do not readily multiply.
    In horticultural farming it can be used as an insect repellent, without causing harm to the pest or plant.

  • Directions for use

    Lime should only be applied to a dry lawn, and never to a lawn that is dormant, wilted, or stressed.
    Limestone is most effective at changing the soil pH when it is mixed in with the top 13cm of soil, which means it’s easier to adjust your soil’s pH before planting grass seed or laying sod than it is to add it to an established lawn.
    Once you’ve applied lime to correct your soil’s pH, chances are you will not have to re-lime for several years.

    Before adding lime to an established lawn, aerate the lawn with a core aerator to open up space for the lime to move into the soil.
    Next, using a drop or rotary spreader (never lay down lime by hand), apply the limestone to your lawn.
    Apply half while walking over your lawn in one direction, then apply the other half in a direction that is perpendicular to your first.
    This will ensure that every part of your lawn is covered with lime.
