The British Survey of Fertiliser Practice* suggests that the steady decline in agricultural land area receiving lime in Britain appears to be reversing slowly for arable agriculture, but for grassland agriculture it is a differerent and more worrying story – see ‘News and Events’ for more information.
The survey also concludes that this area is still considerably less than that calculated to require liming. In addition, it states the principle causes of acidification have not lessened, and it is reasonable to believe that significant areas of arable land, and more particularly grassland, are at a pH level which could limit productivity.

Ultra-fine particle size and a controlled moisture content ensure that LimeX responds well to mechanical compaction.
LimeX is an outstanding example of sustainability. The product is a recycled co-product of British Sugar's beet processing and benefits from an ISO-accredited manufacturing discipline that ensures total quality control.
