Agricultural lime, or ag lime, is crushed or pulverised limestone. Primarily comprised of calcium carbonate, ag lime is known for its corrective effects on soil. It can be incorporated into soil or used as a top dressing.
The main benefit and most common use for ag lime is to reduce soil acidity. However, there are multiple positive effects on soil, including:
- providing added calcium and magnesium to plants
- increased water penetration for acidic soil
- improved mineral absorption of plant nutrients like phosphorous, potassium and nitrogen.
Agricultural lime is most commonly used for farming land, but has a variety of applications across different industries. Commercial clients include power plants, where agricultural lime is used to reduce nitrogen and sulfur dioxide emissions from coal burners.
In addition to soil alkalisation, limestone is used in combination with other landscape supplies as an inexpensive base for:
- farm track construction.
