Common Uses For Limestone What Can Lime Be Used For?

16/12/2014  The pellets allow it to be spread evenly with minimal dust, yet they break down into a finely pulverized texture when it is activated with water. Once activated, Ag Lime dissolves and releases a base into a soil, thereby lowering its acidity. Ag Lime’s chemical properties allow crops to flourish in less-than-ideal acidity conditions. It can boost the profit potential of a farm
