Lime Question


New Member
I need to add lime to my plots I plan to plant soybeans sometime around or after may 1st. I will have to do pelletized lime I was wondering when I should apply the lime and if I can broadcast on top of the ground or if it needs to be tilled/disced in the ground. Thanks for any help in advance.

Apply as soon as you can. Best worked in a bit but ok either way
I agree with lakngulf, if your doing it off of a soil test just put it down asap. Work it in if you can. You wont see an immediate response either way though.

Best time to add is today, next best time is tomorrow, and so on...if you can't work it in you will still be ok...

I've broadcast coarse lime in light soil before and had it bring up the pH from 5.6-6.5 in one season. Still had a good plot right after I applied. Whole different story if you've got heavy soil.
