Ag Lime and Application
It is said that a building is only as good as it's foundation. You wouldn't build a huge, expensive building on top of a weak and faulty foundation would you?
The same thinking applies to how we manage our farms. The soil is the foundation of our farms - it needs to be healthy and strong otherwise you will always be limited in your production and yields. You can pour the fertilizer on your soil, but if your pH level is not where it needs to be then you will be wasting precious money, time, and hurting the environment.
Maintaining your soil's pH levels is one of the most important things you can do in order to build soil health, maximize yields, and increase the efficiency of nutrient uptake. Different nutrients need a certain pH level in the soil in order for them to be up taken and utilized by the plant. A simple, yet effective, way of keeping your pH levels where they need to be is to apply ag lime.
Soil sampling and testing should be done in order to determine how much ag lime your fields need. When we get those results back, we can work with you to develop a plan to economically and responsibly build your soil levels to where they need to be.
