Lime is a soil amendment used to increase the pH levels of acidic soils. It works by replacing hydrogen ions in the soil with calcium, which produces an alkaline environment that is beneficial for plant growth. Lime can also be used to improve nutrient availability and reduce soil compaction, making it easier for plants to access water and nutrients from the soil.
When applied correctly, lime can increase crop yields and help maintain healthy soil. Lime also helps to improve soil structure by increasing the number of pores in the soil, which helps to aerate it and makes it easier for plants to take up water and nutrients. It is important to note that applying too much lime can cause the pH levels of the soil to become too high, so it is important to test the soil before applying lime and to follow recommended guidelines for amounts.
It is important to use the right type of lime for your particular soil type, as different types have varying levels of effectiveness. Dolomitic limestones are often used in soils with low levels of magnesium, whereas calcitic limestones are better suited for heavily acidic soils. Additionally, the type of crop grown can affect which type of lime is used as some crops require different pH levels.
