Default Lime

Never put lime out before. Going to do it this year and see what difference it makes. Already did my plot here at my house and going to do a new plot at my club. Hopefully it will make a difference

It takes a little while before you see the results of lime in the soil.
You can get a more pelletized form of lime that's supposed to be a bit quicker reacting.

Make sure you do a ph test to see how much lime you need.

Isn't the granular type quicker to absorb than pelletized? Pigpen might see this and he knows a good bit about stuff that makes plants grow.

I am pretty far out of my lane but I think most soils in north GA tend towards acidic.

It will make a HUGE difference! Without proper PH and lime you are wasting your time.

I put lime out last year on the club and farm the year before.

I think we put 1000 lbs per ac.

Call a local feed and seed or fert company. They will come out with a spreader truck or fill up a wagon with a bullwheel for you to pull. Buying powdered lime in bulk is a lot more affordable than getting pelletized lime in small bags.
