Declining pH lowers soil fertility and sward productivity. Grass grows best at pH 6.5 and above on mineral soils. LimeX helps farmers maintain the pH of their grassland to optimise nutrient uptake and maximise returns from their crop and livestock.
LimeX can improve the skin finish of potatoes. Replicated trials confirm reduced incidence of common scab where LimeX is applied pre-planting. There are no known negative effects from previous LimeX application to following potato crops.
On mineral soils, low pH can induce deficiencies in phosphorous and potash that can slow root and stalk development and delay maturity. LimeX will rapidly correct soil pH to optimise nutrient availability.
