What our customers have to say about Limex


“LimeX always spreads evenly across the spreader width which makes for an accurate application. I know for sure that farmers are seeing a very clear benefit over the cost of applying LimeX in their crop yields and grassland output.”

 

The visual benefits in establishment and growth in oilseed rape following an application of LimeX are incredible. There are a lot of repeat customers and their neighbours are also starting to ask for it.”

 

LimeX provides a great alternative in what is traditionally a high magnesium soil in this area. Calcium is a very important input here and the crop response to LimeX is dramatic.”

What our customers have to say about Limex


"Many growers in Cornwall need a product which acts fast as they are short term tenants on fields for vegetable production. Alternative liming products don’t act fast enough for them to see the benefits but LimeX does!"


"LimeX is very competitive with other sources of lime supplied into the area, even when considering the transport costs from Newark and Wissington."


"It is very good at controlling clubroot in Brassicas, along with the added benefits of the extra nutrients, it is a great all-round product for vegetable producers."


"Some of the farmers in Cornwall have now started to use it on their grassland to increase productivity having seen the benefits on their other crops."
