The quality of limestone varies widely, with two main kinds of lime available (dolomitic and calcitic lime) that can have very different levels of calcium and other minerals. Our laboratory tests quantify the calcium and magnesium content, as well as score the acid neutralizing value and texture. From this we can tell farmers whether the lime is fit for purpose or not.
In addition to limestone quality analysis, we can also use soil test data from your farm to give accurate recommendations on the amount of lime needed per acre and the best time of year to apply it.
